Just a quick reminder – applications must be received by this Friday, March 15, 2013
The Office of Research at the University of Missouri School of Medicine coordinates a summer research program for undergraduates enrolled at other institutions outside of the State of Missouri.
The objective of the program is to recruit underrepresented and underserved students to the medical school with the goal of improving diversity and inclusion in the clinical medicine workforce.
The program runs for nine weeks (Wednesday May 29, 2013 – Friday, July 27, 2013), with travel days being Tuesday, May 28, and Saturday, July 27.
Students selected for the program live in on-campus, air-conditioned housing (double rooms), and receive a full meal plan, covered by the program.
Summer interns also are provided with funds to cover one hour of academic/research credit, travel to and from Columbia, and a stipend of $3,400.
Students will work on their own research project under the guidance of an MU School of Medicine faculty mentor and present their results at a poster forum at the end of the summer (July 26).
