PhRMA Foundation - Paul Calabresi Medical Student Research


The fellowship is offered to medical or dental students who have substantial interests in research and teaching careers in pharmacology - clinical pharmacology and who are willing to spend full-time in a specific research effort within a pharmacology or clinical pharmacology unit. Fellowships are available for a minimum period of six months or any period of time up to 24 months. The commitment must be full-time.

The principal aim of this program is to generate interest in research careers in pharmacology, including clinical pharmacology, among medical and dental students Students who are not already in a training sequence leading to a research career or students already in an M.D./Ph.D. program for whom additional financial support is appropriate are both eligible to apply. Awards will not be made to a student in a M.D./Ph.D. program who is entering the last 2 years of medical school.
