Medical Student Summer Research Program
The College of Medicine sponsors a 10-week Medical Student Summer Research Program. Through this program, students develop an appreciation of how research contributes to the knowledge and the practice of medicine. Accepted entering students or rising second year students in the USA College of Medicine are eligible. The summer experience includes 1) hands-on research related to basic science and/or clinical medicine; 2) a seminar program that focuses on various scientific and clinical topics; and 3) student presentations at Research Day. Support for the program is provided by the USA College of Medicine Dean's Office, and grants from the American Heart Association and the National Institutes of Health.
For highlights of the 2013 Summer Research Day, featuring keynote speaker Dr. Joe Garcia, visit the Med School Watercooler Blog.
2013 Research Day Winners are Madelyn King (Oral Presentation), Anna Crutchfield (Poster Presentation) and Brian McGrath (Poster Presentation)!
