Summer Research Opportunity: 2017 Diversity Student Summer Research Opportunity Program (DSSROP)


The Diversity Student Summer Research Opportunity Program is designed to provide educational opportunities for undergraduate students who have a strong interest in research careers in biomedical, biological and/or medicine.  In keeping with Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s overall commitment to diversity, we strongly encourage applications from those groups historically underrepresented in medicine to apply.  A fellowship in the amount of $3,000 will be awarded to students.  Students living outside the New York metropolitan area will be eligible for limited travel reimbursement.  It is preferred that students will have completed their junior year of college and intend to apply for admissions to medical school or a doctoral program in biomedical science.  Criteria for selection include an excellent academic record and a strong interest in research.

DSSROP will provide students with eight weeks (June 5th to July 28th) of research experience conducted with a faculty member at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.  In addition to research training, students will participate in special seminar/lecture series together with other college students who are at Einstein for the summer.  Our goal is to introduce students to the broad research environment of a major academic medical center as well as to provide training in a specific field of biomedical investigation.  Campus housing will be available at no cost to students.

Deadline for completed applications is March 10, 2017.  If you have questions or need more information, please do not hesitate to contact us at 718 430-3091.
