Pediatrics Summer Programs for Medical Students

The Department of Pediatrics at NYU Langone provides opportunities to medical students during the summer to augment their learning experiences.

Pediatrics Summer Research Fellowship

The Pediatrics Summer Research Fellowship, which takes place for six to seven weeks each summer, pairs each student with a research mentor who focuses on clinical or basic science research in either general pediatrics or pediatric subspecialties (e.g., pediatric endocrinology, cardiology, infectious disease, oncology, developmental and behavioral pediatrics, or emergency medicine). We do not offer opportunities in pediatric surgical subspecialties such as pediatric surgery, otolaryngology, orthopedic surgery, or neurosurgery.

This is a research-oriented summer fellowship, although you may have opportunities to participate in activities in a clinical setting.

The summer fellowship is geared toward first-year medical students, who participate during the summer between their first and second years. Students must be on track to complete their first year of medical studies by June to apply for this program. The program officially begins on July 5, 2023, and ends on August 18, 2023; however, some students choose to start earlier. While students may start earlier and have longer fellowship experiences, students must commit to ending no earlier than August 11, 2023, and spend at least six full weeks working on their projects. At the end of the fellowship, you will be expected to do a presentation of your project to your peers in the program and a panel of research mentors, who have worked with the fellows over the summer.

Stipends are available only to medical students attending NYU Grossman School of Medicine who are eligible for federal work–study funding.

To apply, please complete and submit the Pediatrics Summer Research Fellowship application. The application deadline is February 17, 2023, at 5:00PM ET. Acceptance notifications are sent on or around March 17, 2023, for NYU Grossman School of Medicine students. The student acceptance deadline is on or around March 25, 2023. The timeline for non-NYU students is approximately one to three weeks later.

Students interested in research in the department at other times during the year are welcomed. Please contact Karla Aguiar at to learn more. For an overview of research in our department, view our “Research in Pediatrics” video, which features several of the mentors from the summer fellowship.

The fellowship is led by co-directors Alexander F. Glick, MD, MS, and Preneet Cheema Brar, MD, MS.
