Research Interest Groups
Medical students, as well as graduate learners and trainees, looking for research opportunities and mentors in the School of Medicine are invited to attend Research Interest Groups (RIGs). The RIGs program is supported by the Department of Clinical Research and aims to improve the quality of research within the School of Medicine and provide opportunities for our learners to have access to research projects. Additionally, through RIGs, our faculty find mentees and research teams are formed.
