Description:

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. 

This new program will ultimately have a capacity of approximately 70 students, with a goal for the initial 2012-2013 class of at least 40 students. For a select group of students, an additional year of support may be available to allow a continuation of ongoing studies where this is judged to be in the best interests of the student and the mentor. 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.
