Research

Undergraduate Research for Future Physician Scientists

The Undergraduate Research for Prospective Physician-Scientists and Physician-Engineers Program, IU School of Medicine’s summer research program for future physician scientists, is designed for high-performing undergraduate students who are committed to pursuing an integrated clinical and research career and plan to pursue combined-degree training in an MD/PhD Program.

This is a program for individuals who will commit a significant part of their career as a physician to pursuing basic science, biomedical engineering or human translational discovery. Individuals who wish to pursue a career as a physician only or individuals who envision biomedical discovery as a minor component of their professional career should not apply to this program but should instead seek other programs designed for your desired career track. Opportunities for research are expected to be available in basic science disciplines and through the interdisciplinary centers for medical research at IU School of Medicine.

The program is open to undergraduate students who have completed their freshman or sophomore year of course work with a background in biology, chemistry, physics or engineering. Applicants must be a citizen of the United States or a permanent resident of the United States (i.e., possess a valid Permanent Resident Card USCIS Form I-551).

The program pays each participant $2600 for the ten-week summer experience, which begins May 24 and ends August 2, 2017. Housing is provided to participants whose permanent address is greater than 30 miles from the IU School of Medicine Indianapolis campus.
