Career Corner: Visiting Clerkship Opportunities for Underrepresented in Medicine (URM)

(1) The Harvard Catalyst Visiting Research Internship Program

The Harvard Catalyst Visiting Research Internship Program (VRIP), for first- and second-year medical students, is a mentored, summer research program, designed to enrich interest in research and health-related careers, particularly clinical/translational research (C/T) careers. In addition to a mentored C/T research experience, VRIP students participate in weekly seminars with Harvard Medical School faculty focusing on topics such as research methodology, health disparities, and various career paths. VRIP students also have the opportunity to participate in offerings of other Harvard Medical School programs such as career development seminars and networking events. VRIP students are expected to complete an abstract, paper, and oral presentation of their summer research project. The eight-week program runs from Monday, June 5 through Friday, July 28, 2023.

Request an application via email. The application deadline is Friday, December 16, 2022. For more information, please visit VRIP.
