Medical Student Summer Research Fellowship

The UCSF Department of Dermatology welcomes applications from medical students interested in doing an 8-week summer research fellowship with a faculty mentor in our department. The project may be a new or ongoing project in dermatology. It can be in any area of dermatology (basic science, epidemiology, population research, health policy, medical dermatology, pediatric dermatology, dermatopathology, procedural dermatology, medical education, outcomes research, etc.). We strongly encourage students who are underrepresented in medicine (UIM) * and students who do not have a dermatology department at their medical school to apply for this research award.
