Medical Student Research Fair
Each fall, the Medical Student Research Program holds a Research Information Fair where interested faculty members are available to talk with Medical Students looking for research experiences and mentors. There is a wide variety of basic, clinical, and translational projects available from Ohio State and Nationwide Children's Hospital. See program calendar for dates and times.
Previous Medical Student Scholarship Mentors
Many students have been very successful connecting with mentors who have had previous Roessler, Bennett, or Watts scholarship recipients in their labs. These mentors have had the experience of mentoring a Medical Student, are familiar with the academic course load and the requirements of scholarship awardees.
