The research fellowship program supports original student research under the direct supervision of a faculty member. Students receive stipends while working full time for 8-10 weeks on projects proposed by faculty members. Second-year medical students are eligible for the program. The Office of Research provides funding of $2,000 for each summer research fellow.

Project Opportunities & Application

The Research Council solicits research project descriptions from faculty members and distributes them to students near the end of the fall semester. Students pursue projects of interest by directly contacting the appropriate faculty member to discuss project details and student qualifications.

Fellowship Award Considerations

When considering fellowship awards, the Research Council evaluates the potential impact of the research experience on the student’s medical education. During the project, the student and sponsor each will submit reports summarizing the scientific and educational progress made with fellowship support.
