Mentoring Students (High School, College, Medical & Other Professional Students)
Would you consider providing a high school, undergraduate, medical or other professional student with a mentored research experience? If your answer is YES, please register here:
Because the Office of Student Research receives numerous inquiries from students seeking paid and volunteer opportunities during the academic year and summer, we rely on specific up-to-date information on three on-line databases:
More often than not, the entries in these databases are out of date and the willingness of a faculty member to have a summer trainee is not apparent.
If you would consider having a student in your research environment (basic, translational or clinical), the Office of Student Research would like you to register (see above) so that we know what your current research projects might be and the kind of student you would accept. If you are actively looking for a summer employee in the either of the student categories, we can also help you advertise this to the medical students.
While direct contact between the faculty mentor and student should occur frequently, day-to-day supervision is often shared with a willing senior graduate student, postdoctoral fellow or senior technician. A set of Trainee-Mentor Guidelines for the HP-STAR Program and for All Other Summer Research Programs at UM SoM are available on the respective program web pages.
