Albany Medical College - Summer Research Program


Category: Summer
Type: Research

Deadline: Early March


College students who have completed their sophomore or junior year. We welcome applications from mature undergraduates with a competitive GPA who have completed at least one laboratory science course. Albany Medical College is committed to increasing the number of students from underrepresented groups pursuing PhD or MD/PhD degrees. These students are encouraged to apply.


The Graduate Studies Program at the Albany Medical College is offering three research programs for undergraduates interested in furthering their training in science, and in exploring career options in research. Programs are available during the summer in which students will have their own research project, be advised by a faculty mentor who will provide guidance and insight, and will be able to take advantage of a variety of Enrichment Activities designed to illuminate the profession of a researcher in the biomedical sciences. Stipends are available for these summer opportunities on a competitive basis.
