Student Research

The Zucker School of Medicine recognizes the importance of research in medical education and encourages students to take an active role in their respective fields of study. During the summer of the first year of training at the Zucker School of Medicine, more than half of first-year students participate in some form of research, and nearly all do so by graduation. Facilitated by the Office of Medical Student Research and the Office of Student Affairs, students have the opportunity choose from several different types of research projects that explore a variety of key areas in medicine. These include short-term and longitudinal studies in basic science, clinical research, community health, medical education, medical humanities, and quality improvement.
