NIH Student Research Opportunity

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Medical Research Scholars Program (MRSP) is a year-long research enrichment program designed to attract creative, research-oriented medical, dental, and veterinary students to the NIH intramural campus in Bethesda, MD. The MRSP is designed for rising fourth-year students (initial clinical rotations completed), but does not exclude other students with strong research interests from applying. Students engage in a mentored basic, clinical, or translational research project that matches their professional interests and goals. The MRSP also provides an academic curriculum with lectures highlighting the process of discovery, training in clinical protocol development and human subjects research, clinical rounds with research patients, and academic leadership training. Applications for the 2013-2014 MRSP class will be accepted from October 1, 2012 – January 15, 2013. Eligible students can apply here.
