Short-term Training Program
Medical student summer research program: This program offers introductory training in sleep and circadian science research to medical students early in their training at Pitt and other medical schools. This is a 10 to 12 week NIH funded individualized research experience with a sponsoring mentor that includes didactics directly linked to student research projects, and opportunities to interact with potential role models and peers.
Program goal: To grow the field of physician researchers by providing access and opportunities in sleep and circadian science research for a group of early pipeline medical students who are diverse in terms of both personal characteristics and educational experience.
Medical student scholarly project: This is a longer term involvement through the School of Medicine Scholarly Project.
