Summer Student Research Program

The Faculty of Medicine Summer Student Research Program (FoM SSRP) provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to explore their interest in health research by undertaking a summer project supervised by a Faculty of Medicine researcher.

It can be filled out by the student, the supervisor, another study team member (e.g. research assistant) or a combination of people.
