Medical Students

Medical Student Research Training Program (UW Students only)

First-year medical students are eligible to apply for the Medical Student Research Training Program (MSRTP). The MSRTP provides funded opportunities for students at the UW School of Medicine to participate in a full-time, 10-week summer research project under the supervision of a full-time UW / WWAMI faculty member. This program provides a stipend for UW medical students to perform a 10-week research project during the summer after their first year. Applications are submitted in the fall of first year.

IDSA Medical Scholars Program (UW and Visiting Students)

The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) sponsors the Medical Scholars Program to promote the subspecialty of infectious diseases by attracting the best and brightest medical students to the field. To further this goal, the IDSA Education and Research Foundation offers scholarships to medical students in U.S. and Canadian medical schools with mentorship by an IDSA member or fellow. A stipend of $2,000 is provided. For more information, see the Visiting Scholars Program website. Interested applicants can develop a project with a faculty member in the AID Division and submit an application (deadlines have previously been in February).
