Medical Research Honors Program (MRHP)
The Medical Research Honors Program (MRHP) is a long-term, hypothesis-driven research program. Students who complete the program, while remaining in good academic standing, will receive an honors distinction upon graduation. To complete the four-year program, students are required to submit a research project proposal, write a thesis and deliver an oral defense. Additionally, students will write abstracts, present posters and publish findings while building towards their thesis defense. The research experience is guided by a research mentor, a thesis advisory committee and the program director. Participation in the Summer Research Immersion Program (SRIP) is encouraged but not required.
