Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
For undergraduate sophomores, juniors and seniors, this is a ten-week mentored, summer research program, designed to enrich the pipeline of college students' understanding of and interest in pursuing clinical and/or translational research, as well as to increase underrepresented minority and disadvantaged college student exposure to clinical/translational research.

In addition to mentored clinical/translational research experience, SCTRP students participate in weekly seminars with Harvard faculty and graduate students focusing on topics such as research methodology, health disparities, ethics, career paths, and the graduate school and medical school application process. Participants also have the opportunity to participate in offerings of other Harvard Medical School programs such as career development seminars and networking dinners. SCTRP students are expected to complete an abstract, paper and oral presentation of their summer research project.

Please note that this program has an invitation-based application. In order for students to receive an application, they must email, using their school email address, their name, year of study and college to pfdd_dcp@hms.harvard.edu in order to request one.
