The Medical Student Research Training Program (MSRTP) provides funded opportunities each year for students enrolled at the University of Washington School of Medicine to participate in a full-time, 10-week summer research project between their first and second years under the supervision of a faculty mentor. The stipend for Summer 2015 was $4500. Participating students present their work at the School's annual poster session, and submit a final paper in standard scientific format. Many students go on to submit their papers for publication.
Projects may fall into one of the following categories: laboratory-based research, clinical and health services, or international health. Students may either a) seek out a mentor and project independently, or b) choose from a list of available projects posted by UW faculty in early November (see below). More information can be found on the
III & MSRTP Catalyst site.
The application deadline is January 15th, 2016.
