Other Fellowships and Research Opportunities

Zucker School of Medicine research program offerings range from singular touch points, such as summer research experiences between the first and second years of training and research blocks in the fourth year, to independent studies in which students take time off to conduct deeper, more sustained research. Students also have the opportunity to take on longitudinal projects they can begin during their summer research experience and revist during selective and elective time in later years.
