This new program will ultimately have a capacity of approximately 70 students, with a goal for the initial 2012-2013 class of at least 40 students. For a select group of students, an additional year of support may be available to allow a continuation of ongoing studies where this is judged to be in the best interests of the student and the mentor. Eligibility: The Medical Research Scholars Program is designed for students who have completed their initial clinical rotations but does not exclude students with strong research interests from applying prior to having completed their clinical rotations. Type of Research: bench, the bedside, and between both—including computational biology, medical informatics, and other emerging areas of contemporary science. The program will provide the opportunity for clinician-scientists and future physicians, dentists, and veterinarians to carry out research across the full spectrum of laboratory, translational, and clinical opportunities in the interests of the public health.

The costs of health insurance benefits are covered by the program. A health insurance policy can be obtained through the NIH Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES). The program will privately reimburse for outside insurance coverage if the individual is enrolled in a private health insurance plan that meets NIH requirements. • Q. Can educational loans be deferred while I am in this program? • Yes, participants in NIH-based year-out enrichment programs have been able to defer student loans while in training programs at the NIH. As a NIH Medical Research Scholars Program participant, you are considered to be engaged in a graduate fellowship. A NIH Medical Research Scholars Program administrator can provide guidance after starting the fellowship. Scholars should contact their financial aid officer to determine their school’s mechanism for deferment. The Office of Clinical Research Training and Medical Education at the NIH should be promptly notified if you have any difficulties related to loan deferment.
