The Medical Student Research Program provides UCI medical students the opportunity to develop insight and understanding of translational biomedical research through completion of a mentored scholarly project. To accomplish this goal the ICTS has developed three research tracks; Mentored Scholarly Projects (MSP), Immersion Experience, and Global Health Research Education and Training (GHREAT).
Application (Process will be discussed in the Fundamentals of Research Elective)
