Research Opportunities

We offer a research setting that breaks down barriers to collaboration. Here, we give you the opportunity to learn from and work alongside acclaimed researchers, but also to challenge them and chart your own course.

As a student in one of our programs, you are mentored by our faculty through a four-year research curriculum culminating in a capstone project. Courses in Years 1 and 2 include interactive sessions led by translational researchers who are doing work relevant to the coursework. You are given protected time throughout medical school to focus on your research, and you may choose to pursue a Scholarly Year, as nearly one third of our students do during their medical school training.

More than a dozen multidisciplinary research institutes foster intensive collaboration along a continuum that runs from the laboratory through patient care.
