For six weeks, under the guidance of the program directors, interns will work on an individual research
project. Interns will conduct research by proposing hypotheses, gathering available data, and analyzing
results to be put into a formal research presentation. Interns will be meeting three times a week, with a
general requirement to dedicate about 20+ hours a week. The time dedicated will be split between
group meetings and independent research. During the last week of the program, the interns will
present their projects to their peers, friends, family, mentors, and the VCU community.

During the program, the interns will have the opportunity to attend weekly seminars and events
sponsored by VCU or by organizations affiliated with VCU. Further information regarding the seminars
and events will be provided to the interns once the program begins.

Unfortunately at this time, VCU MSIP will not be able to offer the interns a stipend.

MSIP has foundational support from the VCU Center on Health Disparities and the VCU School of
Medicine Admissions.
