Research and Clinical Opportunities

American Heart Association - Western States Affiliate Medical Student Research Program


The student research  program encourages promising students, including women and members of minority groups underrepresented in the sciences, from all disciplines to consider research careers while supporting the highest quality scientific investigation broadly related to cardiovascular disease and stroke. The research opportunity will allow students to work for  8, 10 or 12 weeks with a faculty/staff member on any project broadly related to cardiovascular  disease/function or stroke. The goal is to encourage students to consider a future academic career in this area.
