The Biomedical Research Apprenticeship Program (BioMedRAP) is a 10-week summer research program for exceptional students interested in pursuing biomedical research careers. This program is designed to provide a rigorous, in-depth research experience to prepare participants for top-quality Ph.D. and M.D./Ph.D. programs in the biological and biomedical sciences.
Applications for BioMedRAP are accepted November 13-February 1st. As a BioMedRAP participant, you will:
conduct independent research with outstanding faculty mentors
work in a cutting edge science and technology environment
gain exposure to some of the nation’s finest biomedical investigators and an extensive variety of research topics
receive individualized career counseling and develop your career interests
participate in workshops, seminars and journal clubs
build a social network with student peers and faculty
prepare to apply to the best Ph.D. and M.D. /Ph.D. programs in the United States
The BioMedRAP selects participants based on academic achievement, leadership, and commitment to diversity. We seek applicants who have challenged themselves and excelled academically; demonstrate experience overcoming substantial educational, cultural or economic obstacles; are first-generation college students, or can demonstrate a strong interest in bringing diverse people together.
We encourage applications from individuals who come from rural or inner-city areas and individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in biomedical research — specifically African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, women and those with disabilities. Applications also are encouraged from international students currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in the United States.
Individuals who have earned a baccalaureate degree and students who are not currently enrolled at a U.S. institution are not eligible to apply. Priority consideration will be given to applicants with at least one year of research experience.
