Types of Student Research

Students have unique opportunities to work on independent research projects with faculty mentors and build the skills and experience needed to become future researchers.

  • Develop survey instrument skills and conduct interviews
  • Gather data, code interviews and participate in the analysis process
  • Prepare written abstracts and manuscripts for submission to professional meetings and peer-reviewed scientific journals
  • Become a member of the team and an active participant in the overall research process

Student Research Opportunities

The Student Research program provides stipend support for professional health students engaged in collaborative research initiatives with School of Pharmacy and Health Professions (SPAHP) faculty sponsors. Students may choose to participate in either of the following programs:

  • Summer Intensive Program (May- August)
  • Academic Year Program (September- May)

The student may not participate in both programs. To be eligible, a student must be a full-time student in the SPAHP, receive a nomination from a faculty member and be in good academic standing.

In addition to the Student Research Program, the Center for Health Services Research and Patient Safety (CHRP) offers the following student research opportunities: independent research for academic credit and various research assistantships. Students in any academic program within the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions are welcome to participate. More information can be found on the Student Research section of the CHRP website.
