Opportunities

Mackinnon and Student-600

Medical Students

The Peripheral Nerve Surgical Research Group provides research opportunities for 2-3 students during the summer or for any number of students during the school year. These opportunities are coordinated through the office of medical student research. Students are first encouraged to determine their primary interests within the scope of the group’s projects, which allows for the student to be partnered with a primary investigator for one-on-one mentorship. Summer students are typically assigned to work on a small independent project with a lab mentor (research scientist, postdoctoral fellow, or graduate student). Year-long students are given an independent project with broader scope. Throughout the research experience, each student meets regularly with their primary mentor as well as all investigators during weekly meetings.

More information can be found about this opportunity through the Office of Medical Student Research
