A limited number of 6, 8, 10, or 11-week paid, full-time (40 hours per week) summer fellowships are awarded competitively to MCW medical students wishing to participate in a rigorous research or academic experience during the summer between the M1 and M2 years.
Summer Research fellowships are supported by 3 federal grants and other internal resources. Projects must align with the research areas associated with each grant in order to be considered for funding.
Students actively participate on a research team supervised by MCW faculty, and gain opportunities to observe how new discoveries translate into the development of new drugs, devices, and treatment modalities, and to explore basic science, clinical or translational research and potential research careers. Publishing and presenting are two program goals.
Medical students interested in externally supported fellowships should apply directly to these organizations, as instructed on the individual websites. Students who are awarded outside fellowships also will participate in the Medical Student Summer Research Program and will attend orientation, seminars, and other activities scheduled unless the external fellowship takes place at another institution.
Students who apply for external funding must also complete the MCW summer research application as a back-up, in the event their external application is not selected. Contact Chamia Gary, (414) 955-2522 or email@example.com for help in identifying MCW projects/faculty working in these research areas below:
Please consult with your preceptor to identify other external organizations that may provide summer research fellowships for medical students.
