Medical Student Non Paid Research Opportunities

The UCSD Orthopaedic Surgery Department welcomes medical student participation with its research efforts. 

Research Opportunities are non paid positions in which medical students can participate in clinical and/or research projects.  The required participation minimum is 6 months.  

We have led many Independent Study Projects in the past. Medical students should feel free to browse the Research Faculty webpage for a list of faculty members who are currently conducting clinical and/or research projects and initiate contact with any of the faculty.

To facilitate the discussion you can also complete the Medical Student Research Interest Application Form if you are interested in talking with a particular faculty member.
