Research Opportunities

Medical students at the University of Pittsburgh frequently work on Scholarly Projects during the summer between First and Second Year. The Dean's Office's competitive grant program helps support these efforts. Applications are usually due in February, and successful applicants work with potential mentors in the months leading up to that application.

The Department of Emergency Medicine has opportunities for students to work with many of the faculty. Look through our Research and Education pages to find a potential mentor.
