1. Summer Medical Research Programs There exist a variety of targeted programs (here and at other institutions) to promote research among medical students: bulletin boards near student mailboxes and outside J6.110
At UT Southwestern, opportunities are available in almost any area: identifying a mentor and the definition of a project are all that are required
This past summer, more than 130 students participated
All students will submit a brief summary of their at the end of the summer (online tool)
Students are encouraged to work within formal programs - whether on or off campus; whether a part of summer (or year-long) programs

2. Medical Student Research Forum January 22, 2008
Guest speaker: Errol Crook, MD (invited)
Abstract forms available & to be submitted on line
Abstract deadline: 5 PM on November 16, 2007
Panel of judges will select the top abstracts: oral session presentations
All students submitting abstracts are eligible to participate in the poster session/reception
Prizes will be awarded for top oral and poster presentations
3. Abstracts Everyone is invited to submit
Success of your project is not a prerequisite
Exposure to faculty and fellows that share your interests
Efforts in science are not always successful
Presentation is an essential element of science
Conception ? Execution ? Reporting
The abstract book is published
Participation and publication should be listed on your CV
Summary submitted at the end of the summer should serve as an easy precursor to an abstract for submission

5. M.D., with Distinction in Research I. Purpose: To recognize students that distinguish themselves in the conduct of meaningful clinical or basic research activities during the course of their medical school training.
II. Outcome: Individuals satisfying the program requirements would be recognized at graduation and on their diploma as graduating with:
the degree of
Doctor of Medicine,
with Distinction in Research
6. M.D., with Distinction in Research Research may be in the area of clinical or basic research and should encompass a minimum of 16 weeks.
Research successfully performed toward attainment of a Ph.D. would not be eligible for this program.
Research performed under the auspices of a nationally recognized research program (e.g. Sarnoff, Cloisters, HHMI, or Doris Duke Clinical Research programs) during medical school will be eligible for fulfillment of the research requirement.
7. MD-Masters in Clinical Science Program In order to provide a more robust opportunity by which interested medical students can enhance the level of clinical research training, UT Southwestern has established a combined MD-Masters in Clinical Science Program.
This training program will combine rigorous didactic training with a mentored clinical research project. The completion of the didactic and practical training will be marked by the successful submission and public defense of a Masters thesis.
8. Who is eligible ?
At present, this program is available only to medical students enrolled at UT Southwestern. It is anticipated that this program will become much more broadly accessible in future years with the impending designation of UT Southwestern as having successfully competed for an NIH CTSA. MD-Masters in Clinical Science Program
9. MD-Masters in Clinical Science Program What is the timing of the program?
It is anticipated that interested students will conduct the two years of the Masters program following the completion of their third year of medical school. In selected instances, applications will be accepted from students that will have completed their second year of medical school.
10. MD-Masters in Clinical Science Program What does the program provide?
Following the third year of medical school, students enter the two Master's years of the program. During this time, students will receive a stipend, graduate school tuition, and health insurance. This support will be continued throughout the duration of the Masters years of the program. Importantly, after the successful completion of the Master's component of the program, students will receive stipend, medical school tuition, and health insurance support during their final year of medical school.
11. Application process and selection criteria
Application to the program will employ the electronic graduate school application. Successful candidates will be chosen following review by the MD-Master's Program - Selection Committee.
In addition to the completed on-line application form, an official medical school transcript and two letters of recommendation are required. For students applying for the 2007-2008 school year, applications should be completed by January 15, 2007. Students selected to participate in the program for the 2007-2008 school year will begin their didactic coursework during the 2007 Fall semester. MD-Masters in Clinical Science Program
