We encourage interested medical students to contact us to discuss opportunities to investigate and experience key elements of research in the medical humanities. Under the guidance of the Center for the History of Medicine faculty, U-M medical students can explore the intersection of medical historical research and public health/medical policy through a Summer Biomedical Research Program. In this program, students conduct original research that tailors personal interests and expertise with ongoing research projects at the Center. The rewards are many, but surely one of the highest is to see their efforts recognized when completed projects are incorporated into original peer-reviewed journal articles stemming from the Center’s major research foci.
In order to preserve the quality of mentorship, we regret we can accept no more than one student intern each summer.
Interested students are encouraged to email the department.
