Student Research OpportunitiesStudents are welcome and encouraged to inquire about research opportunities with any School of Medicine faculty in all SOM departments . Faculty in this database have indicated their specific interest in working with medical students on Independent Study Projects, research, and/or directed readings.
Important Policy Regarding ISP Chairs/Academic Credit
In accordance with Academic Senate requirements, a faculty member acting as ISP Chair or as a course director for a 296/299 elective (e.g. independent reading, laboratory or preceptorship elective or for time spent working on the ISP) must have the appropriate instructional title (e.g. salaried UCSD School of Medicine professor, professor in residence, professor of clinical __, clinical professor and adjunct professor).
NOTE: Voluntary faculty may serve on the student's ISP committee and often serve an important role in the ISP; however, they are not eligible to act as ISP Chairs or award academic credit for 296/299 elective courses.
