Pre-baccalaureate Training in Musculoskeletal Science

The Pre-baccalaureate Training in Musculoskeletal Science program typically includes a 4 semester experience including 1) 4 Independent Study courses, which will take place in the fall and spring semesters junior and senior year, 2) a 12hr/wk paid position during these four semesters, and 3) a 40hr/week paid position during the intervening summer. Academically successful students are usually selected from the BME and Biology Departments, and the program of activity is negotiated with and monitored by the undergraduate program coordinators from each department. Dr. Alayna Loiselle serves as the director of the program, and connects qualified students with the PI of their choice.

For the 2018-2019 academic year, the program includes 25 trainees across 15 different labs in the CMSR.
