Academic Research Track
The Academic Research Track (ART) is a program for first and second year medical students who are considering a research experience as part of their education or career.
ART seminars introduce research concepts, useful in planning a mentored summer or 'year out' research project. Informal lunchtime seminars occur throughout the first two years of medical school. Modules, consisting of 2-3 seminars each, cover such topics as mentoring and being mentored, formulating a research question, measurements, data gathering and presentation, obtaining research funding and writing for publication.
ART is part of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, which offers funding for year-long research experiences. If students elect to pursue a Masters degree concurrently, tuition is covered by CTSI funding.
