Since 1993, faculty in the Department of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery at IUSM and the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at IU Bloomington have provided research training to medical students after their first year, under the sponsorship of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Not all students who have participated have eventually gone into otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, but all students have found the experience to be useful for their residency applications as well as helpful in their subsequent careers.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Indiana University School of Medicine are offering an outstanding research training opportunity during the summer of 2012 to Indiana University medical students who have completed their first year of medical school. This 13-week training program is designed to give students an opportunity to gain first-hand experience in basic, behavioral, and clinical research on hearing and communication. NIH trainees will participate in designing experiments, collecting and analyzing data, interpreting results, and presenting empirical findings. Students will work with researchers in one of the following three departments at IU Bloomington: Psychological and Brain Sciences, Speech and Hearing Sciences, Linguistics. Each student will be supervised by a faculty member who is actively involved in research.
Sudents will be exposed to some of the major concepts in the fields of speech and hearing sciences and cognitive science. Students will have opportunities to learn by conducting research and through active participation at laboratory meetings and lectures. A 30-page final paper must be submitted at the end of the training period. Anyone with interest in these areas is encouraged to apply. Prior research experience is not required.
A stipend of $5,400.00 is offered for 13 consecutive weeks, during the summer of 2012.
The program is open to Indiana University School of Medicine students in the M.D. program who have completed their first year and who are United States citizens, permanent residents of the United States, or non-citizen nationals of the United States. Students with graduate degrees are eligible and are encouraged to apply. Women and members of minority groups are encouraged to apply. Prior research experience is not required.
