The Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine offers a Summer Research Fellowship Program for current year one and year two medical students and pre-matriculants to gain additional research experience through various research projects in basic, educational, population outcomes, translational and clinical research.
The Summer Research Fellowship Program is awarded on a competitive basis. Existing medical students in good standing and pre-matriculants interested in gaining additional research experience are eligible to apply. The program runs for 6 weeks (and there must be a mutual agreement with a faculty member). Students are expected to work 30 hours per week. And attendance at the end-of-program banquet is mandatory.
Current medical students will receive a stipend of $2,500. Pre-matriculants will get a tuition waiver of $2,000 for the Spring semester.
