Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunities

            There are many opportunities for 10-12 week summer research programs for undergraduates throughout the country.  The AAMC keeps a list that can be found here:

Note that this list may not be comprehensive- there are some schools that have programs not listed here.  This will take some research to do on your own.  If you know of a place that you would like to work in the summer, and it is not listed here, then go to the school's website and search for summer undergraduate research opportunities.  It may take some “digging” but if they have a program then you should be able to find it!

Listed below are programs that have directly sent us links to their programs and advertised them.  Not all schools do this. The list from the AAMC shown above is a great place to start!
