Medical Student Research Portal
While not every medical student will want to pursue a career in research, it is critical that students learn the basics of research and have access to opportunities that supply them with more detailed exposure. Understanding the scientific method will allow students to become lifelong learners by continually and critically interpreting and reading literature throughout their careers. For some, after fully experiencing the world of research, it becomes clear that choosing to make basic science or clinical research a large part of their career is imperative to their growth as a physician. In addition, many competitive residency programs place value on research when reviewing a student’s application. It is because of this that MUSC makes it a priority that all students have ease of access to research programs and internships.
In the past, it was often difficult for students to find research opportunities (both on campus and off) and there was not a functioning and reliable list of mentors. It has become apparent that there is a real and tangible need for such a database for students. And thus, The Medical Student Research Portal (MSRP) is intended to create and promote research opportunities for medical students and fill the void previously felt by those who searched for reliable projects. The objective of the MSRP is to become a one-stop-shop for students to navigate through research and funding opportunities and learn how engage in a research project. Whether it is longitudinal research, a summer opportunity, or creating a research elective, it is our sincere hope that all medical students will find the site helpful throughout their careers at MUSC.
