Eligibility

Students currently in their first year of medical school at the University of Oklahoma Medical School are eligible to apply. Students who are interested in a career in pathology may be given preferential consideration. While students who have had previous research experience may be at an advantage in performing laboratory research, we strongly encourage highly motivated students who do not have a research background to apply to the program.

Application

Students interested in the program must submit a completed application no later than April 1st on the same year of the program. Applicants must choose to work with a specific mentor (this must be mutually agreed upon between student and mentor); a list of prospective projects/mentors will be compiled each year.
