Medical Students Travel Award


The purpose of this award is to provide travel funds for medical students to present their research at national meetings. We hope to encourage medical students to perform and present meaningful research, whether basic, clinical or translational, during their medical studies.

Funding is available for up to three awards for each academic year (July 1 to June 30).

  2. Research can be basic, clinical or translational. Single case reports are not eligible.
  3. Research mentor must have primary faculty appointment in the Department of Medicine.
