This program will be in its 15th annual cycle during Summer 2002 and is

designed to attract students to various fields of clinical research.

Students also gain valuable experience assessing validity of current

clinical practice standards in a discipline. Research methods and data

analysis are emphasized.

Target audience: First and second-year medical students will be eligible

for summer fellowships. Some undergraduate pre medical students as well as

graduate students will be eligible (depending on availability of funding and

mentors). Additionally, one to four positions are reserved for first or

second year law students and one to three for advanced degree nursing

students.

Program components: Student applicants will complete a research fellowship

application form. Specific sponsors or preceptors will be identified for

qualified students as funding becomes available. Attempts will be made to

place a research student in an area of personal interest. Review criteria

for selection include strong student academic records, personal achievement

and integrity, research skills and experience, and recommendations from

scholastic advisors. Sponsors/preceptors will be encouraged to participate

in the recruitment of students and will provide students with guidance and

workspace during the summer. Students are expected to consider the program

as their full-time summer employment. Structured academic training programs

and clinical observation beyond the specific project (provided by the

mentor(s)) will also be encouraged.

Stipend: Each student will receive a stipend of $766.66 per three-week

period for a maximum award of $2300 over a nine-week program.

Progress milestones: Each student will be requested to attend a series of

dinner meetings at three-week intervals. The purpose of these programs is

to provide research fellows with additional information on abstract

preparation, poster preparation, manuscript preparation, and data analysis.

The dinner meetings serve as a forum to present preliminary data and to

become acquainted with other students and mentors. Each student will be

expected to deliver a brief verbal report at each meeting.

At the conclusion of the summer program, a student must prepare a meeting

abstract, research poster, and research manuscript evaluated by his/her

preceptor in order to receive final stipend payment. If performance

evaluation at the conclusion of the program is desired, a written evaluation

by each preceptor can be prepared. These evaluation summaries can be

forwarded (if a student requests them) to their respective campus academic

advisors.
