Summer Urology Research Program
The Summer Urology Research Program at NYU Long Island School of Medicine’s Department of Urology offers medical students the opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor on one or more research projects in topic areas including oncology and pediatrics. The primary focus of the program is clinical research. We accept one to three qualified students for the seven-week program.
In the program, students join a faculty member in completing an ongoing research project with their mentor’s guidance. Students gain valuable insight into the publication process, including participation in co-authorship of research projects in peer-reviewed urologic journals. In addition to research efforts, students shadow faculty in clinical and operative settings tailored to a specific subspecialty including oncology, pediatrics, and minimally invasive surgeries, and attend departmental academic meetings such as tumor board, journal club, and grand rounds.
Students work closely with the school’s Biostatistics Core on their projects and attend statistics seminars to gain a better understanding of statistical methods used in research.
The Summer Urology Research Program is designed for exceptional academic scholarly productivity and to increase student’s competitiveness for a urology residency in the future.
