The New York Medical College Summer Research Program sponsors a limited number of students to pursue research projects under the direction and supervision of faculty mentors. This program is intended primarily for students who have successfully completed their first year and can carryout their research projects during the summer vacation period between their first and second years. However, it is possible for students entering their third or fourth year to participate if appropriate curricular arrangements can be made to provide for an eight-week period free of other commitments that can be devoted to a research project. Research projects available for student participation are listed by department in a catalog prepared yearly. Application for financial support from the College program should be made to the Office of Student Affairs by submission of a research proposal approved by a faculty mentor. Financial support from departmental sources can be obtained through the sponsoring faculty mentor.
