Research and Clinical Opportunities

The HHMI-NIH - Summer Medical Fellows Program


The Summer Medical Fellows Program is primarily aimed at students who later intend to apply for the year-long Medical Fellows Program. Summer Medical Fellows spend eight to 10 weeks doing full-time research with an HHMI investigator, early career scientist, HHMI professor, or Janelia researcher. Fellows are exposed to high-quality science, have a chance to increase their scientific knowledge and research skills, and interact with world-class investigators in a rich training environment. Fellows can gain insight into a career as a medical scientist and determine if they would like to continue their research training in a year-long program.

This program is for medical, dental, and veterinary students attending schools located in the United States. Up to 20 fellowships are awarded annually.
