Research Program for Medical Students

The Research Program for Medical Students (RPMS) offers students completing their MS1 year the opportunity to participate in an 8-week summer research experience under the direction of a faculty mentor and receive a $2,500 stipend. Projects may be clinical or basic research and provide rising second year medical students with a hands-on experience that provides an introduction to research. Research is the driving force behind medical advancement and this experience changes the way students learn to think as physicians and influence their practice of medicine. It also has the potential to open new doors, as many residencies look for research experience. 

You can learn more about the program on the USC School of Medicine website
