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 2013 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.
The application deadline is January 5.
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).
If you are a University of Washington medical student or faculty member with questions about MSRTP, please contact Julie McNalley at 206.616.8637 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
