Research and Clinical Opportunities

American Pediatric Society and Society for Pediatric Research


The APS and The SPR are offering a grant to medical students who wish to participate in research in a pediatric laboratory at a medical school other than their own. Students selected to the program are able to choose or are assigned to leading research laboratories/groups. Currently, our Directory of Laboratories/Research Groups lists research opportunities at more than 300 facilities in the United States and Canada.  Additionally, the societies have organized a central information desk in our main office to act as a clearinghouse for matching interested medical students with the laboratories that fit their research interests. Students can visit our web site to download an application packet or to review the on-line directory of laboratory opportunities.
