Medical Student Research Fellowship Opportunity at UC Irvine

The Leadership and Innovation Fellowship Training (LIFT) Program in Urology at the University of California, Irvine is an intensive one-year program that provides up to two medical students with unmatched training and experience in urologic research.  Students will be able to participate in innovative basic science, translational, and clinical research projects throughout their fellowship year. To facilitate this experience, LIFT fellows are paired with mentors from the Department of Urology’s world-class team of faculty. Additionally, students receive focused training in leadership through the UC Irvine Department of Urology mentorship program.
The LIFT program assists medical students to take steps towards becoming future innovative leaders in the field of urology. LIFT fellows are responsible for designing and submitting study protocols, preparing abstracts and manuscripts, and presenting their research at regional, national, and international meetings. During their fellowship year, LIFT fellows have the opportunity to attend multiple professional urology conferences, including the Western Section of the AUA meeting and the annual meeting of the AUA.
All medical student fellows have access to the Department of Urology’s state-of-the-art laboratory and surgical skills center and are encouraged to take advantage of these resources. Some of the simulators and models available for use in the surgical skills lab include a Da Vinci robot, MIMIC robotic simulator, Simbionix LAP mentor, Simbionix URO mentor, Simbionix PERC mentor, several laparoscopic box trainers, pelvic models, uteroscopy trainers, and iPad-based laparoscopic trainers.
Applications are due: Februrary 15, 2015.
