The TSI is the academic home for master’s and doctoral graduate education programs as well as other formalized programs for undergraduate and high school training opportunities covering the spectrum of clinical and translational science.
The WFU Office of Postdoctoral Affairs works to establish, support and promote scientific and professional training opportunities for postdoctoral colleagues. See their webpage for information about programs and services.
Each year the Medical Student Research Program (MSRP) identifies research opportunities for medical students and coordinates the student research fellowship program. Fellowships will be awarded during the summer or for a consecutive 10-week period when students have no other scheduled duties. Funds are available to support a minimum of 16 from an NIH-supported Medical Student Training Grant with possible additional sources such as departmental or other institutional funds. Last year we were able to fund approximately 40 applications. The process was very competitive and we anticipate the same this year.
To obtain a research fellowship, the student must submit a fellowship application that will be evaluated on the potential quality of the research training experience. It is the student’s responsibility to contact an interested faculty member and together plan a research project. With the faculty member’s assistance, the student is expected to prepare an application for the research fellowship. The faculty sponsor must agree to supervise the project and provide the necessary research funding, space, equipment, and mentoring. Students doing this in the summer are required to attend a weekly noon seminar, and all students must present a poster describing his/her research findings at Medical Student Research Day (MSRD).
The 27th Annual Medical Student Research Day (MSRD) is Wednesday, October 10, 2012 from 12:15 pm to 4:00 pm. This program was conceived and initiated by medical students to show the faculty and other students the types of research activities carried out by medical students. The format is an informal poster presentation of your research activities. All Medical Students who have conducted research over the past year are encouraged to participate. Prizes are awarded for outstanding posters.
The Department of Pathology/Section on Comparative Medicine of Wake Forest University School of Medicine invites applicants from 1st and 2nd-year veterinary students for NIH-sponsored Summer Research Fellowships in Comparative Medicine. These positions provide a unique opportunity for structured training in a research-intensive environment, with a focus on comparative disease pathophysiology in nonhuman primates and other species.
