Research, scholarly pursuits, clinical and service experiences are an important aspect of any medical student’s training.
Medical students may conduct scholarly activity at any time during their training. However, the summer after the first year of medical school is an ideal time to engage in these endeavors.
The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine maintains a database of current research, scholarly, clinical and service opportunities that students may reference anytime. This includes positions at the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Children's, local programs,
and programs nationwide. Listings consist of both summer programs and year-long opportunities and are divided into Internal (UC/CCHMC) Research and External Research. Other resources available to students interested in research and
scholarly activity include:
Additional information may be found on the Office of Research page including research portfolios for all COM departments.
The Summer Opportunities Series includes several events that provide first-year students the chance to identify where their own research and service interests lie. First-year medical students are encouraged to participate in all activities as events have been scheduled to prevent interference with academics.

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 summer research and
service experience while allowing first-year medical students and the College of Medicine community to learn about what they have done.
