Medical Student Academic Support & Counseling

Research Opportunities

Research, scholarly pursuits, clinical and service experiences are an important aspect of any medical student’s training. The summer after the first year of medical school is a particularly opportune time to engage in these activities. Recent summer experiences from the class of 2020 can be viewed in the two surveys below:

MSRI summer survey

Student Affairs summer survey

The Office of Academic Support maintains a database of current research, scholarly, clinical and service opportunities that students can refer to at any time. Current listings of research opportunities can be found on the Student Affairs web page, Medical Student Academic Support & Counseling, Research Opportunities. The list includes positions at the University of Cincinnati, other local programs, as well as programs nationwide. Listings include both summer programs and year-long opportunities. 

First Year Students

Every year in November, the Office of Student Affairs sponsors Summer Opportunities Week. First year medical students hear first-hand from program directors, potential mentors and service program directors highlighting some of the local research and service programs.  Later in the week a peer mentor summer opportunities panel shares information, advice and details about their own research and service experience. The week culminates with the annual Research and Service Symposium

7th Annual Research and Service Symposium Kresge Hallway

7th Annual Research and Service Symposium, November 17, 2017, 12:00pm to 2:00pm. Kresge hallway.
The annual Research and Service Symposium is co-sponsored by the Internal Medicine Interest Group and the Office of Student Affairs.

It provides an opportunity for second-year medical students to showcase and present their research and service experience while allowing first-year medical students and the College of Medicine community to learn about what they have done.
This further affords first-year students a chance to identify where their own research and service interests lie and what programs they might apply.
