M.D. Program

Medical Student Research Committee

Mission Statement:

The Medical Student Research Committee focuses on policies and resources related to medical student research, research mentoring, and the Scholarly Paper requirement. The Committee functions in an advisory capacity to the Office of Medical Student Research under the auspices of the Office of Medical Education. In addition, the Committee reviews selected Scholarly Papers and adjudicates applications for Einstein Research Fellowships (i.e., for 12 months of dedicated research time). Committee membership includes clinical, translational, and basic science research faculty. 

Contact List: 

The members of the Medical Student Research Committee (MSRC) are available to assist you in the process of identifying and contacting potential research mentors for your Scholarly Paper. Below you will find a listing of the MSRC members and key words to guide you in selecting an MSRC member. Contact information is available for each person by clicking on his/her name.
