The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Medical Research Scholars Program is a comprehensive, year-long research enrichment program designed to attract the most creative, research-oriented medical, osteopathic, dental, and veterinary students to the intramural campus of the NIH in Bethesda, Md. Scholars engage in a mentored basic, clinical, or translational research project in an area that matches their personal interests and goals.
The Medical Research Scholars Program is designed for students who have completed their initial clinical rotations but does not exclude students with strong research interests from applying prior to having completed their clinical rotations.
