Summer Research Opportunities

High School Biomedical Scholars Program

You will be guided through a structured, two-week immersive program alongside talented faculty and graduate student mentors from RowanSOM. You will observe and perform laboratory techniques and experiments used to conduct biomedical research with guidance from mentors in their research specialty. A rare opportunity to participate in human cadaver dissection is available to you, although you may elect to participate in an alternate activity if preferred. You will also receive information about available careers in research and medicine, and guidance for getting accepted into graduate and/or medical school in the future. The program will conclude with a luncheon ceremony for you and your family; this will provide an opportunity for you to interact with administration and faculty from various schools and departments representing Rowan University’s biomedical education and research programs.

Space is Limited! Don't Delay!
