Volunteers

 

Performing a research project is a great way to obtain valuable experience in a clinical or laboratory setting.   Many students decide to volunteer to gain research experience while making their decision to enter medical school.  Other students may need to fulfill an undergraduate research requirement.  Whatever the case may be, participating as a volunteer research student during the summer will provide you immeasurable knowledge and skills. 

Volunteer students may participate in the concluding poster session event and may also submit an abstract for inclusion in the annual Summer Student Abstract Booklet.  

Eligibility:

  • Must have a commitment from a Rutgers, RBHS-NJMS Faculty Member
