Student Research at VP&S
There are numerous opportunities for students to engage in research and global health projects, and several times in the curriculum for interested students to select such opportunities. The summer between first and second year, and electives and Scholarly Project months during the curricular phase of Differentiation and Integration (D&I) are ideal times. Specific seminar opportunities are also offered to VP&S students in their first and final years to exchange ideas and hone scholarly skills.
Resources for planning first-year summer opportunities can be found on our VP&S Summer Opportunities Resources site. Our VP&S Student Research Database provides project, mentor, and funding resources to help guide students in planning projects, including the Scholarly Project. In addition, the AAMC's Clinical and Research Opportunities website provides a list of fellowships, internships, summer programs, scholarships, and grants currently available in the United States and abroad.
