Summer Research Help

The School of Medicine has provided incoming second-year medical students a summer program of high-quality training in basic and clinical research through the Summer Research Program (SRP). Directed by Dean Koong-Nah Chung, PhD, the program has generated enthusiastic participation by medical students and has been highly productive with more than 306 publications by our students since its inception.

Before you start your Summer Research selective come to the Becker Library for a PubMed refresher and help in learning how to organize your articles quickly and efficiently. You can attend small group sessions or meet one-on-one with a clinical librarian.  Contact Kim Lipsey for more information.
