The Medical Student Research Program (MSRP) promotes and supports the engagement of USD medical students in a wide variety of research and scholarly activities, with the recognition that research plays an important role in the field of medicine.
The types of research and scholarly activities that we support include:
- Basic biomedical research
- Translational research
- Clinical studies
- Epidemiologic studies
- Educational projects
Medical students who have been newly accepted to our medical school have the opportunity to spend their summer as part of research projects. A group of faculty research mentors provide a range of research in which students can participate through the Medical Student Summer Research Program.
Here are abstracts from past years' Summer Research Program projects. Research options can change each year.
The Scholarship Pathways Program offers three elective tracks:
- Education: For students with a special interest in academic medicine, teaching and the medical curriculum
- Research: For students with a special interest in clinical or basic science research
- Service: For students with a special interest in community service and leadership development
The Child Health Innovative Research Program will provide foundational research training in clinical and biomedical sciences in areas related to children’s health. Students selected will receive a stipend, tuition assistance and the hosting lab will receive funds for supplies. To apply, choose a research mentor and submit an application. Applications are due March 1.
Potential mentors for basic science, translational and clinical research.
Mentors who wish to participate in the MSRP are invited to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The MSRP offers awards to medical students to support both research and travel expenses.
