Call for mentors for Summer Research Immersion Program (SRIP) 2023 now open!

SRIP matches medical students interested in research with mentors with active or planned research projects. Projects should undergo review by Geisinger's institutional review board (IRB) prior to program commencement, and should provide students an opportunity to meaningfully contribute and describe results by the end of the eight-week program. 

Students are expected to dedicate 35 - 40 hours per week to their research projects, on a schedule mutually agreed upon between student and mentor.

Mentorship offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Sharing knowledge/expertise with learners 
  • Helping trainees succeed and become colleagues
  • Developing and enhancing professional networks
  • Extending professional and scholarly contributions

For more information on mentor expectations and program details, review the Geisinger Commonwealth Research Mentor Manual or reach out to or SRIP Director Elizabeth Kuchinski (
