Research Opportunities

Research is the foundation of medical knowledge – you will learn from and participate in research during professional school.  Health professionals depend on medical literature to remain current in their field during their entire career.  Most medical schools highly recommend participation in research.  It is also a plus for dental and veterinary school.  The UUSOM requires participation in independent, hypothesis-based research using scientific method.  Your research experience could be from many different areas – it does not have to be medically related or in a lab.
