Program Helps Medical, Dental, Veterinary Students Enter the Pathway to Biomedical Research Careers

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Medical Research Scholars Program (MRSP) is a comprehensive, year long research enrichment program designed to attract the most creative, research-oriented medical, dental, and veterinary students to the intramural campus of the NIH in Bethesda, MD.

Student scholars engage in a mentored basic, clinical, or translational research project on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, or nearby NIH facilities that matches their research interests and career goals.

The program is ideally designed for students who have completed their initial clinical rotations. However, students with strong research interests are welcome to apply prior to having completed these rotations. Dental and veterinary students are encouraged to participate after either their second or fourth year. Accepted fourth-year students must defer graduation until completing the program.

NIMHD is proud to participate with other NIH Institutes and Centers in the MRSP. Our goal is to introduce the MRSP to medical, dental, and veterinary students from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds and encourage them to consider biomedical research as a career.
