The National Institute of Health (NIH)/National Eye Institute (NEI) has funded the Short-Term Research In Vision & Eye Health (STRIVE) Program which aims to train qualified medical students who have an interest in ophthalmology and vision research, as well as improve diversity in the workforce. This would be the first and only summer medical student research training program at UC San Diego (UCSD) focused on ophthalmology, vision research, and eye health. This program is specifically tailored to medical students who have some clinical knowledge and academic interest, but who may not have extensive prior research experience.
The program will provide full-time research and clinical support for 8-12 consecutive weeks at UC San Diego during the summer for 4 qualifying medical students per year from across the country. The program will include hands-on research experience, career development, and long-term mentorship. The multi-disciplinary research training experience will also include instruction in areas such as biostatistics, research ethics, and leadership skills. There will be an opportunity at the summer research symposium for the trainees to present their work. The trainees will be able to collaborate with mentors to develop their work for presentations at national conferences.
This is a paid internship, with monthly stipends ranging from about $2200 per month for predoctoral interns.
You can access the (STRIVE) Summer 2023 Internship application here.
Deadline for application submission is December 16, 2022. The summer 2023 program will correspond with an academic year timeline.
For any questions regarding the application process or eligibility requirements, please contact UC San Diego program coordinator Victoria Patronilo at firstname.lastname@example.org

The overall objective of the NEI Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Program Award at UCSD is to develop outstanding clinician scientists to successfully compete at the national level for NIH grants and emerge as leaders within academic Ophthalmology. Through this institutional career development award, we will mentor clinician scientists toward independent academic appointments in ophthalmology.
