Research Opportunities

Looking for research opportunities as a medical student? Our newly launched Clinical and Academic Research Scheme aims to help you with that!

This new, student-led scheme supports and facilitates highly motivated students in their journey through research.

Clinical and Academic Research Scheme

As medical students ourselves, we understand how daunting it can be to get involved in research in the first place. We launched this scheme to help students gain exposure to research, by coordinating research projects between students and supervisors.

Not only is it an opportunity for students to gain further insight into the field of research, but students may get the opportunity to present at conferences or contribute to publications, making it an attractive addition to their portfolio.

Projects will be released as they become available, but students will be free to indicate their preferences and we can help you source relevant projects.

What are you waiting for? Sign up with us now to get involved in research!
