This program will be in its 15th annual cycle during Summer 2002 and is designed to attract students to various fields of clinical research. Students also gain valuable experience assessing validity of current clinical practice standards in a discipline. Research methods and data analysis are emphasized.

Target audience: First and second-year medical students will be eligible for summer fellowships. Some undergraduate pre medical students as well as graduate students will be eligible (depending on availability of funding and mentors). Additionally, one to four positions are reserved for first or second year law students and one to three for advanced degree nursing students.

Program components: Student applicants will complete a research fellowship application form. Specific sponsors or preceptors will be identified for qualified students as funding becomes available. Attempts will be made to place a research student in an area of personal interest. Review criteria for selection include strong student academic records, personal achievement and integrity, research skills and experience, and recommendations from scholastic advisors. Sponsors/preceptors will be encouraged to participate in the recruitment of students and will provide students with guidance and workspace during the summer. Students are expected to consider the program as their full-time summer employment. Structured academic training programs and clinical observation beyond the specific project (provided by the mentor(s)) will also be encouraged.

Stipend: Each student will receive a stipend of $766.66 per three-week period for a maximum award of $2300 over a nine-week program.

Progress milestones: Each student will be requested to attend a series of dinner meetings at three-week intervals. The purpose of these programs is to provide research fellows with additional information on abstract preparation, poster preparation, manuscript preparation, and data analysis. The dinner meetings serve as a forum to present preliminary data and to become acquainted with other students and mentors. Each student will be expected to deliver a brief verbal report at each meeting.

At the conclusion of the summer program, a student must prepare a meeting abstract, research poster, and research manuscript evaluated by his/her preceptor in order to receive final stipend payment. If performance evaluation at the conclusion of the program is desired, a written evaluation by each preceptor can be prepared. These evaluation summaries can be forwarded (if a student requests them) to their respective campus academic advisors.
