Studentships and Funding
Research is an activity many students choose to engage in during their time at medical school. While it can often be a prescribed part of your medical course, there are plenty of opportunities to independently pursue placements as well.
Often, this is best achieved by contacting researchers at local institutions and checking to see whether they have any available placements.
There are also large-scale programmes in existence run by institutions but open to all students.
Sources of funding for vacation research placements
Often, individual institutions will have their own additional sources of funding restricted to students attending that University. There are however additional sources of funding; the main institutions offering such funding are listed below.
