CMM Medical Student Academic Enrichment Fellowship
The Center for Molecular Medicine (CMM) is sponsoring a
Medical Student Academic Enrichment Fellowship. The CMM
Fellowship will provide a stipend of $25,000 for a medical
student admitted into the
Fifth-Year M.D. Enrichment Program offered by the School
of Medicine. Entrance into this program can be made at the
completion of any academic year, although it is anticipated
that most students will pursue the extra year of academic
work following completion of phase one of the curriculum (year
two) and prior to starting phase two (year three).
The aim of the CMM Fellowship is to support an intensive,
one-year, mentored experience in human disease-oriented
and/or clinical/translational research, under the direction
of a CMM faculty member. Depending on availability of funds,
appropriate projects based in other UConn Health Departments or
Centers may also be considered for CMM Fellowship support.
Award of the CMM Fellowship stipend is contingent on the
student's acceptance into the Fifth-Year M.D. Enrichment
Program. While gaining acceptance into the Fifth-Year M.D.
Enrichment Program is the responsibility of the student, the
faculty advisor of a student approved for a CMM Fellowship
will assist in this process.
Interested students should contact Center for Molecular
Medicine at 860-679-6298 or email
to learn more about research opportunities and/or for
assistance in the Fellowship application process.
