Department of Medicine Research Programs for Medical Students
NYU Langone’s Department of Medicine is committed to developing physician–scientists through our many research opportunities for medical students. We sponsor more undergraduate research projects in our many divisions than any other clinical department at NYU Grossman School of Medicine.
We encourage students to pursue research in the early stages of medical education so that you can develop your research interests throughout medical school, residency training, and your professional career.
In our Summer Research Program, you start a research project and begin developing a relationship with a research mentor as early as the summer between your first and second years of medical school.
Many students who participate in the Summer Research Program continue to build on their research, choosing a scholarly concentration or participating in the Honors Program at later stages in their medical education.
Students who choose a scholarly concentration as part of the MD degree spend 12 weeks on a research project during the final stage of the Curriculum for the 21st Century, or C21. This can be a continuation of research pursued in the Summer Research Program or a new research project.
We also offer options for medical students who wish to continue their research projects after graduation with two research-focused tracks in our Internal Medicine Residency program—the physician–scientist residency track and the clinical investigator residency track.
