The goal of the Medical Student Research Training Program is to provide medical students with structured training in clinical research and the tools necessary to begin a successful career in academic medicine
Identify a clinical research mentor who is also a DCRI faculty member and a clinical project (see Research Projects below for requirements). Former 3rd-year Duke medical students are an excellent resource for information about mentors, projects, and scholarship opportunities.
Contact the DCRI course directors (listed below) if you have specific questions about project ideas and identifying suitable mentor(s) at the DCRI.
Develop a project research proposal.
Submit the proposal (project title, description, mentors) to the medical school administrators for this program.
Apply for Duke CTSA scholarship or other funding.
Once the project has been approved, contact the DCRI course directors to start planning the 3rd-year schedule.
