The University of Michigan Pre-MSTP, ten week summer research program that Michigan’s Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), (which is an MD/Ph.D. program) is sponsoring. The “Pre-MSTP” summer program is designed to provide an opportunity for highly motivated and talented undergraduates interested in careers as physician scientists to enhance their science and academic skills.
The program is targeted towards students who are from geographically, culturally or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds, students who have experienced financial hardship, and students with disabilities. Applicants should have completed at least their freshman undergraduate year.
The main focus of the program is laboratory biomedical research, but the program also includes physician shadowing, an MCAT prep course, and an opportunity to attend bi-weekly seminars and a 2 day MSTP retreat on Lake Erie in August.
Here are links to the program announcement and application form for the program.
The deadline for application submission is February 1, 2012.
