UCSF Dermatology Summer Research Award

The UCSF Department of Dermatology welcomes applications from medical students interested in doing an 8-week summer research fellowship with a faculty mentor in the department. The project may be a new or ongoing project in dermatology, and can be in any area of dermatology (basic science, epidemiology, population research, health policy, medical dermatology, pediatric dermatology, dermatopathology, procedural dermatology, medical education, outcomes research, etc.). The research award amount is $3500. Funding may be utilized for housing, travel/ transportation, meeting registration, meeting travel, and research resources. An additional $1000 will be granted to non-UCSF medical students to cover the costs of travel to/from San Francisco. Students who are underrepresented in medicine(UIM)*  are encouraged strongly to apply. Students who do not have a dermatology department at their medical school are also encouraged to apply for this research award.
