PURPOSE OF COURSE:
The College of Medicine Discovery Pathways Program is an optional program for medical students to build a portfolio of accomplishment and scholarship in a defined area acceptable to pathway leadership. The overall goals of the Research Track are:
- Allow students to perform an extended research project within their 4 year medical school curriculum, and graduate with their classmates.
- Students may apply for Graduation with Honors in Research and the Craig Tisher MD Faculty in Research Prize.
- Expose medical students to research and begin their training as Clinician Scientists.
- Be flexible enough so that students may choose to extend their research experience beyond the primary track and pursue the MD/Ph.D. program.
