Description:
The UCSP is a 9-week rigorous summer research enrichment program. The program is open to students from any accredited university in the United States and is designed specifically for undergraduate students with an interest in clinical/epidemiologic research, with an eventual goal of MD, PhD, or MD-PhD degrees. Preference will be given to non-graduating college students.

The program includes weekly didactic lectures and statistics workshops as well as a program-long research experience with an expert clinical investigator. Weekly lectures and workshops will provide an introduction to epidemiologic and biostatistical topics, and will be paired with small group discussions or workshops to reinforce content presented in lectures. Additional lectures will encompass topics on practical aspects of clinical research, which includes human subjects and research ethics, writing abstracts and scientific manuscripts, and admissions to graduate programs.
