Campbell School of Medicine Summer Research Experience

Team science in the biomedical sciences is the future. Clinicians and non-clinicians working together will be the ones that solve the grand challenges facing human and animal medicine. Yet, in most STEM training programs, technical skills are the sole focus. As interdisciplinary teams are used more and more to accomplish complex objectives in bordering technical fields, managerial skills are critical for success. Effective communication enables leaders to engage others toward a common goal and to be better mentors for next-generation scientists. Our unique program partners with Campbell University medical students seeking research experience and focuses on improving those key communication skills in a variety of ways including:

  • Becoming an active and fully integrated member of an interdisciplinary team. 
  • Improving your science communication skills: seminars on how to pitch a project, present at a conference, make a poster, writing proposals and more
  • Improving your data analysis skills
  • “Mentoring the mentor” approach to leadership skills training
  • Hands-on experience as a member of an active research team
  • Opportunity to engage in your research project from germination to publication

Campbell students should contact their Research Office for specific details. Projects will be advertised via the Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine (CUSOM) Research Office in the Fall semester for the following summer.
