Summer to Advance Research Training at Yale School of Medicine

START@Yale 2021

The START@Yale Program for the summer of 2021 will offer in-person lab experiences and research. Other components of the START@Yale Program including orientation, journal clubs, didactic activities and the final symposium may be virtual.

START@Yale is appropriate for those with substantial research experience, as well as those with little or no prior experience in biomedical research.

The overarching goal of START@Yale remains to encourage interest in physician-scientist careers among entering medical students. The hybrid model of programming will introduce our newest students to the extraordinary range of outstanding science at YSM.
