Research Experience for Medical Students (REMS)
The REMS program provides a summer research experience for UND medical students prior to or following their first year classes. The program is funded by the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS).
The goal of the program is to provide hands-on experience and training in basic, behavioral, social, or translational (clinical) research by the future physicians of North Dakota. The REMS program also provides an excellent training opportunity for those medical students who may be considering placement in the UND SMHS Physician-Scientist Training Program for completion of an MD/PhD.
- This competitive program will support up to eight weeks of summer research under the direction of faculty members in the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS).
- The period of support will be completed within the period of May 16, 2014-August 1, 2014.
- Interested participants should identify a faculty sponsor who has agreed to sponsor a summer research experience student. The student should then contact the faculty member(s) to discuss potential projects.
- Once identified, the sponsor and student will jointly submit an application that contains:
- A brief description of the research project, which includes its hypothesis, goals, expected duration and the hours the student expects to work each week
- A separate letter from the supporting faculty indicating commitment to participation in the student training
- Participants will be compensated at the rate of $12.50/hour based on a 40-hours-per-week training experience.
- Program participants will work alongside faculty, and graduate and undergraduate students within the respective research programs at the UND SMHS.
- Students will be expected to read scientific literature relevant to the project, and participate in laboratory research meetings and summer research seminars.
- Each student will be required to present a poster presentation at the annual Frank Low Research Symposium.
The deadline for submissions is May 7. Applications should be e-mailed to:
