Medical Student Research

The Department of Pathology invites students to pursue research opportunities in pathology. Options include: anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, and microbiology and immunology. Notably, the relationship between the department and ARUP provides a number of unique opportunities for students to explore within a nationally-recognized reference laboratory. See a list of current labs and research interests here

Current medical students who are interested in research in either anatomic or clinical pathology may enroll in PATH 6070 - Medical Student Research. This course allows students to earn 2-6 credit hours while participating in an independent research project under the supervision of a Pathology faculty member. Proposed research should apply the scientific method and be hypothesis driven, with the expectation of a significant contribution by the student to a project for suitable for co-authorship on an abstract at a national meeting or a manuscript publication.
