The UK Population Medicine Summer Research Program (PM-SRP) provides summer research experience to rising 2nd-year medical students and offers a $1,500 stipend over an 8-week period. The goal of the PM-SRP is to provide medical students the opportunity to participate in a research project and expose them to the research environment of an academic medical center and the activities of academic physicians and other faculty.
Suitable projects will be designed to allow you to learn and participate in medical research, including formulating a hypothesis, experimental design and executing the work as well as analyzing the results.
Your mentor for the summer can be any faculty member at UK, so long as they agree to guide you through a project that falls within the broad interest areas of family and community/primary care–based research. The following areas of research and investigation are broadly reflective of likely interest areas for a PM-SRP project:
- Patient-centered Outcomes research
- Community-engaged research
- Public health
- Practice-based primary care
- Quality Improvement
- Other studies of specific behaviors or diseases of interest to primary care
Fellows commit to present the results of their research to Community Medicine Faculty and staff at the end of the program. They also are required to submit the project to the UK Center for Clinical and Translational Science's Spring research showcase, or another suitable research conference.
