UME Studentships in Medical Education Research

UME is pleased to announce that it will offer up to two studentships in medical education research during the 2019/2020 academic year. This opportunity is open to all NOSM medical students enrolled in Phase 1 of the program. Offered in collaboration with MERLIN (Medical Education Research Laboratory in the North) recipients will receive training and conduct research in medical education as part of a Research & Teaching Special Education Experience (RT-SEE). The RT-SEE will be supervised by a NOSM faculty member and occur during the Summer, and one or both of the Fall and/or Winter terms. Recipients will receive a studentship of $6,600 plus up to $1,500 travel expenses to attend an academic conference at which they will present their research findings. The studentship will be paid during the summer term.

To apply for this opportunity, students should complete an RT-SEE proposal in collaboration with a NOSM faculty member (a list of potential supervisors and research interests can be found on the MERLIN website at https://www.nosm.ca/research/merlin/merlin-team-members/). The RT-SEE form can be found at https://www.nosm.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Special-Education-Experience-Application-and-Approval-Form-Research-and-Teaching-1.pdf Note that you need to fill in pages 1-3 before submitting.
The completed proposal should be submitted to the Associate Dean, UME (adume@nosm.ca) by October 14th. A review of applications and a decision on funding will be made soon after that date.
