Medical students will participate in 8 (to 10) weeks of research between their first and second year, mentored by faculty members in the College of Medicine or other Colleges. Note that some programs require full 10-week summer commitment. A full-day training on the first day of the summer (June 1) 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 list of available faculty mentors/projects or they may independently find mentors. A list of opportunities and links are provided below.
See the full list of Internal Opportunities.
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 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 is canceled this year (2021).
Students will participate in either poster or 3 MT session. The dates will be announced later.
