Learning and discovery does not only happen in the classroom. From research, conferences, to fellowships and beyond, the medical school is always learning about new opportunities available to students to gain valuable experience outside the classroom and the medical school.
Students have a wide range of opportunities to gain hands-on research experience, and contribute to medical advancements that create a healthier future for everyone. Students can do research for credit, for pay (such as through grant stipends), or as a volunteer.
The University of Minnesota Foundation (UMF) encourages innovative research by Medical School students and awards grants to students pursuing basic, clinical, or community-based research interests. The goal of this program is to encourage medical students to conduct independent, mentored, academic research using a protocol of their own design.
