Description:
The Visiting Research Internship Program (VRIP), for first and second year medical students, is an eight-week mentored, summer research program, designed to enrich medical students' interest in research and health-related careers, particularly clinical/translational research careers.

In addition to a mentored clinical/translational research experience, VRIP students participate in weekly seminars with Harvard faculty focusing on topics such as research methodology, health disparities, ethics, and career paths. Participants also have the opportunity to participate in offerings of other Harvard Medical School programs such as career development seminars and networking dinners. VRIP students are expected to complete an abstract, paper and oral presentation of their summer research project.

Please note that this program has an invitation-based application. In order for students to receive an application, they must email pfdd_dcp@hms.harvard.edu in order to request one.
