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.

Girl in the lab ART seminars introduce research concepts, useful in planning a mentored summer or 'year out' research project. Informal lunchtime seminars (light lunch included) occur throughout the medical school year. 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 SMD Masters degree concurrently, tuition is covered by CTSI funding.
