Physician Scientist Track
About the Track
Undergraduate students accepted into the Physician-Scientist Track will work under Medical Scientist Training Program faculty and alongside MD/PhD students on a cutting-edge research project related to ongoing studies in the host lab. During this internship, students will engage in both research and clinical activities as well as network with renowned faculty. Students will also attend weekly virtual seminars intended to complement their in-lab training with necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in a scientific career. Seminar topics will include a biomedical and clinical sciences career panel, workshops on how to read scientific papers, apply to graduate school, and give scientific presentations. The 8-week internship will culminate in both oral and poster presentations as part of a campus-wide summer research symposium. Participation in the program provides students with hands-on experience in a laboratory environment, training to succeed in scientific careers, and a network of faculty and graduate students to provide longitudinal mentorship.
