The Medical Student Research Program (MSRP) is offered to entering medical students who wish to acquire a strong research
background without the formal structure of a degree-granting program.
MSRP students work with dedicated faculty in the basic sciences and clinical research departments. The program provides students with three 12-week periods for research over three years. With the aid of a faculty sponsor, students are expected to write a publishable paper or prepare an honors thesis.
There are 20 MSRP positions available each year. Students apply during the first year in medical school. The program is open to students attending both the Syracuse and Binghamton clinical campuses.

"The MSRP provides me with a mentored opportunity essential to enhancing my understanding for evaluation of evidence-based medicine," said TeSha English, a third-year medical student in the program. "It also solidifies my career interest in patient-oriented research."
