In addition to completing a mentored research project, students will participate in professional development workshops designed to facilitate the preparation of competitive applications for graduate/medical school. Workshops include: preparing a personal statement, resume, and abstract; research ethics and issues; a GRE or MCAT test prep session, and preparing and presenting a scientific poster. Students will also attend weekly research seminars regarding a broad array of scientific topics. The program culminates with a competitive poster session.
