Why spend your time in a low paying summer job when
you could be gaining valuable research experience or preparing
yourself for the rigors of medical school? OU-HCOM offers two summer
experiences for students who are ready for the challenge.
Summer Undergraduate Research
The 2014 SURF
application is now available!
Deadline - February 1, 2014
Participants in the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship
program work in an active research laboratory under the guidance of
a faculty mentor. This seven-week program is designed to expose you
to the challenges, excitement and satisfaction of biomedical and
basic science research. In addition to gaining research experience,
program participants will also earn six semester hours of Ohio
University biological science credit which may be transferred back
to your home institution.
The 2014 Summer Scholars application is now available!
Deadline - March 1, 2014
Summer Scholars is a rigorous premedical program that has been
opening doors for students from disadvantaged backgrounds since
1982. The program is designed to enhance preparation for admission
to medical school by immersing participants in activities similar to
what one would encounter during their first year at OU-HCOM. This
includes a core curriculum of basic science courses taught by
medical school faculty, study skills and time management workshops,
clinical experiences and special presentations on cultural
competency and research methods. In keeping with the educational
culture at OU-HCOM, all activities are designed to emphasize
case-based problem solving and small group teamwork.
