The Scholarship and Research (SCHOLaR) Program

The Scholarship and Research (SCHOLaR) Program provides students with fundamental research skills and mentored research training. The program encourages creativity, enables students to further develop their understanding of the scientific method in medicine, and supports their dedication to deliver the highest quality patient care.

The SCHOLaR Program provides longitudinal sessions on research skill development as well as didactic training. To participate, concurrent with their research coursework, medical students engage in research during the summer between Years 1 and 2. Students are then supported by a content mentor and a track advisor who will help them complete a rigorous scholarly project to be presented at the annual Medical Student Research Day, fulfilling their graduation requirement. 

The Scholarship and Research (SCHOLaR) Program consists of:

  • Research Curriculum: classroom and multimedia materials to learn about study design, statistics, and evaluation of a research manuscript
  • Advisors: guided navigation for finding a mentor, research study, and funding
  • Summer research: developing and conducting a study
  • Presentation of study findings at Medical Student Research Day
