2013-2014 Medical Research Scholars Program (MRSP). The application deadline is January 15, 2013.
As of November 1, 50 applications have been received. The goal is to fill a capacity of 70 MRSP scholars.
The MRSP strives to cultivate a pipeline of medical researchers and clinician-scientists by educating medical, dental, and veterinary medicine students on the principles of scientific discovery and clinical research and opening their minds to long-term career opportunities. MRSP provides creative, research-oriented medical, dental, and veterinary medicine students with an opportunity to become actively engaged in basic, translational, and clinical research early in their careers. 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 research and career goals. The MRSP also provides an academic curriculum with content highlighting the process of discovery, training in clinical protocol development and human subjects research, clinical teaching rounds utilizing the robust pool of patients enrolled in research protocols at the NIH Clinical Center, and academic leadership training. A Power Point presentation is attached that describes some details of the program.
One of our current students, Joshua Bakhsheshian, is currently in the program on a 1 year leave of absence from CMS and would be happy to give you further inside information on the program.
