NIH Launches Medical Research Scholars Program

A new Medical Research Scholars Program for medical and dental students will begin in September 2012 in Bethesda, Maryland. The year-long program will offer research experiences with intramural investigators from across NIH in basic science laboratories, and in clinical and translational research conducted at the NIH Clinical Center.

A new Medical Research Scholars Program for medical and dental students will begin in September 2012 in Bethesda, Maryland. The year-long program will offer research experiences with intramural investigators from across NIH in basic science laboratories, and in clinical and translational research conducted at the NIH Clinical Center.

The program is made possible through a partnership with the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health supported by a grant from Pfizer Inc and contributions from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Program applications will be accepted through mid-January 2012. About 40 students are expected to be admitted during the program's first year. The goal is to accept up to 70 students as the program grows. Support for selected students will include a stipend and resources for education enrichment, such as travel to scientific meetings.
