The Medical Student Research Program (MSRP) is a 9-week, full-time summer research experience for Wake Forest School of Medicine students. Selection is through a competitive process. Participants work with a faculty mentor to conduct a small research project in basic, clinical, or community-based research and participate in a weekly research ethics seminar series.
- A modest stipend is provided in accordance with NIH funding guidelines. The MSRP covers funding for stipends.
- Students will work on their projects for 40 hours a week for 9 weeks. Attendance at weekly research ethics seminars is required.
- All students are required to present their research at Medical Student Research Day, held each October.
- Faculty sponsors, agreeing to supervise the project and provide necessary space, supplies, equipment, and monitoring, serve as mentors for MSRP participants.
- Faculty interested in serving as mentors will submit brief project descriptions that are shared with all medical students in January of each year. Students can choose a project from this list or develop an idea of their own.
- To obtain a research fellowship, the student must submit an application that will be evaluated on the potential quality of the research training experience. Applications will be available early in 2016.
- The 2016 program beings on May 31, 2016 and ends on July 29, 2016. Required orientation will be held on May 31.
