Medical students will participate in eight (to 10) weeks of research between their first and second year, mentored by faculty members in the College of Medicine or other colleges. A full-day training on the first day of the summer (Tuesday, May 31, 2022) is required to begin all summer research.
Research projects may include basic science, clinical, translational, public health, medical ethics, and other topics. Students will be given access to a full list of departmental contacts or they may independently find mentors. A list of programatic opportunities and links are provided below.

With generous support from the Translational Research Institute and College of Medicine, we are able to provide $3,000 stipend for many students for the summer research. Some programs provide their own funding. Please refer to the Internal Opportunities section.
Student Research Day
In March of every year, the College of Medicine hosts a college-wide research day. All summer research participants are expected to present their research during second or third year. Please note that Student Research Day was canceled for 2022. Instead, we held a virtual 3MT competition.
