The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Medical Research Scholars Program (MRSP) is a comprehensive, year-long research enrichment program designed to attract the most creative, research-oriented medical, dental, and veterinary students to the intramural campus of the NIH in Bethesda, MD.
Student scholars engage in a closely mentored basic, clinical, or translational research project on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, or nearby NIH facilities, that matches their research interests and career goals.
The MRSP is designed for U.S. citizens and permanent residents currently enrolled in an accredited medical, dental, or veterinary program who have completed their core clinical rotations. This does not exclude students with strong research interests from applying prior to having completed their clinical rotations.
Medical and osteopathic students: participation in the MRSP is recommended after you have completed your first year of clinical rotations (i.e., third year of medical school).
Dental and veterinary students: due to the integrated nature of the third and fourth (clinical) years, participation in the MRSP is recommended after you have completed your second or fourth year in school.
