Research Opportunities

How Do I Get Involved in Research?

TUSOM students have plenty of opportunities available for getting involved in research. The most important step in the process is to connect with a faculty mentor. This page is designed to help you do that! Generally speaking, the best time to focus on a research project is during the summer between your T1 & T2 year, since you have plenty of time to do so. However, you can get involved with research at any time during your medical education. 

If you are a T1, and would like to get involved in summer research IN NEW ORLEANS, please check out these funded opportunities:

If you are a T1, and would like to get involved in summer research ELSEWHERE, please see "Summer Opportunities" on this page.

If you are a T2 or above, and would like to get involved in research, please see "Basic/Bench Research," "Clinical/Translational Research," "Population/Public Health Research," or "Call for Student Researchers" on this page. 

Basic/Bench Research

Students interested in basic/bench research should contact Dr. Diane Blake for more information.

Program Announcement

 

 

Program Announcement

The Cancer in the Under-Privileged, Indigent, or Disadvantaged (CUPID)

Summer Translational Oncology Program

 

The CUPID Summer Translational Oncology Program is a laboratory-based research experience designed to introduce rising second year medical students to oncology. The program is jointly administered by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHU), Indiana University School of Medicine (IU), and The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Our mission is to address the impending shortage of practicing oncologists within the US, and to cultivate an interest in cancer treatment and research among a diverse body of compassionate medical students. US medical students who are interested in translational research and health care disparities, and who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to community service are invited to apply. Students may select their preference of location in: 1) Baltimore, Maryland, 2) Indianapolis, Indiana, or 3) *Columbus, Ohio (students may be considered for more than one location).

 

*At this time we plan to have an in person program in 2021. Depending on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic next year, the program could change to a virtual online program.

 

The number of fellowships at each of the sites is limited and admission will be highly competitive. One important goal of the program is to reach out to students at institutions that are not affiliated with an NCI-designated cancer center. Accordingly, such applicants will be prioritized.

 

The program runs for a total of 10 weeks (June 1 – August 6, 2021). Within these dates, students can select an 8-week period that best conforms to the academic calendar of their home medical school. Applicants who will not be available for a full 8-week period will be considered on a case by case basis.

 

Key features of the program are:

 

  • An intensive, structured laboratory-based research experience.
  • A 7-week didactic lunch lecture series delivered by senior faculty via live video conference simultaneously to all three sites. Topics are varied, and include the molecular basis of cancer, the pathophysiology of common types of cancer, cancer diagnosis and therapy and cancer health disparities. The course varies from year to year, depending on speaker availability and the integration of new speakers and topics, and also by new developments in cancer research and care.
  • Students participate in half-day rotations with physicians on both medical, surgical, pediatric and radiation oncology clinical services.
  • To help build a broad professional network, students from all sites will participate in a two-day joint conference in Washington, DC that is focused on cancer-related advocacy and policy.
  •  Other program activities include a weekly journal club and a closing symposium.

 

By bringing a diverse group of highly motivated students together for an intensive oncology experience early in their training, we expect to instill an enthusiasm for oncology in a group of future caregivers who are most likely to serve the underserved. First year medical students from accredited US medical institutions or in a US territory are invited to apply. The students will be chosen based on their academic standing, community service, and their interests in oncology and health care disparities. **Students will receive a program stipend, housing (if needed) and gym membership for the summer. For more details about the program, students may visit our website.

DERM Research Year Opportunity

We would like to share with you a one-year research opportunity that may be of interest to
your 2nd or 3rd year medical students who are contemplating a career in dermatology.
Specifically, the Division of Dermatologic Surgery, Department of Dermatology at Northwestern
University has an opening for a gap year research fellow from July 2021-June 2022. During this
mentored research year, students learn to apply the methods of clinical research in order to
complete several individual research projects pertaining to skin cancer and skin surgery. While
the position is unpaid, gap year students are supported to attend national meetings to present
their work, and are also provided appropriate training. All gap year students completing this
program during the past 10 years have been successful in matching in dermatology residency.
I am the primary mentor for the gap year student at Northwestern Dermatologic Surgery.
For more details about the program and application, interested students should email Dr. Emily
Poon, PhD, Director of Clinical Research, Division of Dermatologic Surgery, Department of
Dermatology (emily.poon@northwestern.edu).

Dear Careers in Medicine Colleagues,

 

The Careers in Medicine team has launched an updated Clinical & Research Opportunities database with a new look and feel.

 

This tool allows learners to search for clinical and research experiences offered in the summer or year-round, and filter by desired specialty or topic.

 

We have streamlined these filters and improved the search and sorting features to be more user friendly.

 

The redesigned tool is also mobile friendly and continues to be accessible without sign-in.

 

We hope you will share this improved resource with your students. Please direct feedback or questions to careersinmedicine@aamc.org.
