Maximizing Access to Research Careers Program

Research Trainee Program

Juniors and Seniors chosen for the two-year Research Trainee Program become active members of a scientific research community. This valuable opportunity, rarely afforded to undergraduates, is the best preparation for graduate training and a career in biomedical and behavioral science research.

At the center of the two-year Research Trainee experience is research. Trainees will work on faculty-directed research projects about 12 hours per week during the academic year and 40 hours per week during the summer. The capstone of the Research Trainee Program is a summer research experience at an affiliated research university.

Additionally, Research Trainees will interact with other Trainees, participate in activities that enrich their research experiences, take courses designed to prepare them for graduate school and careers in biomedical and behavioral science research, and participate in peer recruiting activities.
