The program enables students to explore careers in cutting edge biomedical research and academic medicine, gain research tools applicable to clinical practice, add distinction to medical school CVs, and develop mentoring associations with faculty preceptors.

Program for Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE)

Internships are available in the fall and spring (part-time hours) and the month of January (full-time hours). Interns will be required to spend a minimum of 8 hours a week in the lab for the duration of their internship. This internship program is coordinated through the Recruitment Office.

Research Systems Training

Research Systems Training offers training and documentation for the eBridge software application used by the MCW research community and hosts a user forum to share best practices.

Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR)

The Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) provides the opportunity for students to learn first-hand the potential of the biomedical sciences as an interesting and fulfilling career. The SPUR program provides laboratory experience in science, in which the undergraduate works with graduate faculty, students, and staff on significant ongoing basic science research issues. This program is primarily intended for students interested in a PhD degree in biomedical sciences.
