Summer Opportunities for Medical Career Development
This experience is an introduction to the research aspects of a medical career and
the ways in which modern research is conducted. The student will work side by side
with a faculty member, performing a variety of lab or clinical techniques and experiments.
Opportunities to participate in ongoing clinical research projects will also be available.
The work will vary with each student, depending on the research interests of the investigator.
College of Medicine Faculty are invited to submit applications for student summer
research which are then reviewed by the Summer Research Committee. If students have
an area of interest, they can contact a faculty member to request that they submit
an application identifying them as the summer student on the project. The list of
approved research projects will be available February - March. Each student will be required to submit an abstract and participate in a Summer Research
Symposium at the end of the program (dates to be determined).
