Students have numerous opportunities to participate in basic science, clinical and population health research. For M.D. students, several formal programs are available that provide funds for students to engage in summer research. The Landings Women’s Golf Association Summer Scholars program allows students to partner with faculty mentors and engage in summer cancer research on our Savannah campus. The Summer Student Research Scholars program matches students with faculty throughout the medical school network to engage in multiple projects and professional development experiences. Throughout the year, MUSM students participate in the research of faculty members as well as independent student-generated research. Within the curriculum, medical students also gain exposure to potential research opportunities during the Population Health and Medical Research (PHMR) Block. Graduate students have the opportunity to participate in the research of their faculty members, including through paid research assistantships.
