The Office of Research at the University of Missouri School of Medicine coordinates a summer research program for undergraduates enrolled at other institutions out of the State of Missouri.
The objective of the program is to recruit underrepresented racial and ethnic groups to the medical school with the goal of improving diversity and inclusion in the clinical medicine workforce.
The program runs for nine weeks (Wednesday May 30, 2012 – Friday, July 27, 2012), with travel days being Tuesday, May 29, and Saturday, July 28.
Students selected for the program live in on-campus, air-conditioned housing (double rooms), and receive a full meal plan, covered by the program.
Summer interns also are provided with funds to cover one hour of academic/research credit, travel to and from Columbia, and a stipend of $3,400.
Students will work on their own research project under the guidance of an MU School of Medicine faculty mentor and present their results at a poster forum at the end of the summer (July 26). Please see the attached application.
Deadline: March 16, 2012.
