Researchers: Want med student assistance on your project?



The five-month Discovery Phase of the Emory University School of Medicine curriculum provides medical students with the opportunity to conduct hypothesis-driven research projects while working closely with a faculty mentor.

If you have a research project that a medical student could assist with (including chart reviews), please submit your application via the Discovery Phase website and send only the project title to Jane Kuhlenbeck in the Office of Research by August 18. The Office of Research will compile a list of project titles to hand out to medical students at this year’s “Discovery Research Fair” on Tuesday, August 22 from 4:30 – 5:15 p.m. (SOM lobby).

Providing information and guidance on possible opportunities in your specialty will help students make informed decisions and find the ideal research project. We hope to have strong participation from as many divisions as possible. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us.

For more information about the goals of the Discovery Phase, faculty mentor requirements, or to submit a mentor and/or project application, click here. Faculty who do not meet the mentor criteria are still welcome to participate in Discovery as part of a mentoring team.
