NIDDK funds summer research experiences (i.e. 2-3 months) for medical, or other health professional, students usually between the 1st and 2nd year of medical school. You should contact directly the person listed at the location
where you wish to do your research.
If you are a medical student who wishes to take a year off to pursue research training, NIDDK supports such year-off research experiences via supplemental slots to training grants
. Please check our list of currently funded training grants
to identify an eligible location.
- If you are enrolled in a combined MD-PhD program and will be pursuing your PhD dissertation research in an area of research supported by NIDDK, consider applying for an F30 award.
