 For six weeks, under the guidance of a research mentor, interns will work in a research lab at VCU. Interns will conduct research with a project provided by the research lab they are placed in. Students will put together a slideshow and poster presentation based on their work from six weeks in the lab. During the last week of the program, the interns will present their projects to their peers, friends, family, mentors, and the VCU community.

During the program, the interns will attend weekly seminars by guest lecturers sponsored by VCU or by organizations affiliated with VCU. Further information regarding the seminars and events will be provided to the interns once the program begins.

Unfortunately at this time, VCU MSIP will not be able to offer the interns a stipend.

Please note that eligible applicants must be current residents in the Greater Richmond Area.

MSIP has foundational support from the VCU Center on Health Disparities and the VCU School of Medicine Admissions.
