ICTR-Shapiro Medical Student Research Fellowship

smph_4c_cSupported by  ICTR and the Herman and Gwendolyn Shapiro Foundation, this research fellowship provides SMPH medical students the opportunity to engage in an intensive yearlong research experience under the mentorship of a UW SMPH faculty member.

Medical students in the program take a year out from their studies to participate in the fellowship, usually after their second or third years. Students are paid a stipend during their fellowship year. A unique aspect of the fellowship is a tuition allowance for students to complete six credits toward a Certificate in the Fundamentals of Clinical Research through ICTR.
