PORTAL (Patient-Oriented Research Training and Leadership)
The PORTAL (Patient-Oriented Research Training and Leadership) program is a highly selective, strongly mentored program, designed to encourage the career development of medical students who seek to become leaders as physician-scientists.
With this program, some students can opt to devote a year conducting research or working on another type of scholarly project in order to obtain mentored, one-on-one research training, or engage in a service or advocacy project.
INSPIRE (Individual Scholarly Project and Independent Research Experience) Program
The (INSPIRE) program is a fourth-year curriculum initiative which aims to enable students to conduct a strongly mentored research project so they may harness their critical thinking skills, while demonstrating their creativity and intellectual independence.
FAME (Fellows As Mentors)
The student-run program allows fellows to mentor first and second year medical students, giving mentees an opportunity to actively participate in a clinical-translational research project during the school year.
