This 8 week summer research program gives underrepresented students across the United States the ability to gain first hand experience in various medical fields through workshops, research, and more! Students are paired with a research mentor who will teach them about research methodology and assist them throughout the course of the program. At the end of this summer research program, students will have also gained both poster and oral presentation skills. This summer research program runs from early June to late July and participants will need to be able to commit the full 40 hours each week at Indiana University.
