Medical Student Summer Research Fellowships and Capstone Project

The University of Massachusetts Medical School offers many summer research fellowships to incoming first and second year medical students. This fellowship began in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health and has grown to encompass many departments conducting both population-based as well as basic science research.

In addition, the medical school implemented a new graduation requirement of completing a Capstone Project as part of the Capstone Scholarship and Discovery Course.  Many FMCH faculty have advised and mentored students over the past two years.
