Summer Dental Student Research Fellowship Program
Spend a summer out of the classroom and in intensive investigation
The Summer Dental Student Research Fellowship Program offers UCSF dental students the opportunity to participate in mentored research. For three months between their first and second years of dental school, a select number of students work closely with faculty mentors to conduct research on a topic of importance to dentistry.
Working with leaders in research, students learn the methods, tools and language of science, an introduction that propels many of them into careers in academia. The Summer Dental Student Research Fellowship Program has a long and illustrious history at UCSF; it is considered one of the most enriching educational experiences for dental students at UCSF, and a talent incubator for developing future leaders within our profession.
