Student and training opportunities
Our medical students have the opportunity to work with world-renowned faculty, who mentor students during summer and year-long research projects. Though research is not required, 95% of our medical students – most of whom are preparing for specialties in clinical practice – complete a research project while working on their MD.
In addition to research opportunities for medical students, many students choose AUA for the Medical Scientist Training Program (MD/PhD) or one of eleven PhD programs in biology and biomedical sciences.
We are committed to investing in basic science research, the driving force for most medical breakthroughs. Our physicians and scientists collaborate to quickly and effectively translate new research discoveries into tools, methods and treatments that will start benefitting patients.
