Summer Research Fellowship


The NYU School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics offers a Medical Student Summer Research Fellowship Program each summer. The Fellowship consists of an eight week program, in which each student is placed with a clinical or basic science researcher either in general pediatrics or in one of the pediatric subspecialties.

This fellowship is targeted to first year medical students, who would participate during the summer between first and second year. However, other students interested in research within the department at other times can find placement through the contact person listed below.

The fellowship starts approximately one week after first-year students complete their classes. However, this start date can be flexible.

Students participating in the fellowship have opportunities for experiences in clinical pediatrics during the summer.

The Fellowship co-Directors are Alan Mendelsohn, M.D., and Shonna Yin, M.D., M.S.


You must have completed your first year of medical school by June to apply for this program.


This website will be updated with details regarding whether an honorarium will be provided.
