PROGRAM FOR MEDICAL STUDENTS: VISITING RESEARCH INTERNSHIP PROGRAM (VRIP)

The Visiting Research Internship Program (VRIP) is an eight-week mentored, summer research program designed to enrich medical students' interest in research and health-related careers, particularly clinical/translational research careers.

In addition to a mentored clinical/translational research experience, VRIP students will participate in weekly seminars with Harvard faculty focusing on topics such as research methodology, health disparities, ethics, and career paths. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in offerings of other Harvard Medical School programs such as career development seminars and networking dinners.
