The UCLA Department of Head and Neck Surgery seeks to foster a culture in which issues of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion underscore our missions in delivering patient care, in training the next generation of leaders in otolaryngology - head and neck surgery, and in expanding our academic reach through the pursuit of leading edge research. The UCLA Head and Neck Surgery Medical Student Research Training Program provides an opportunity for two U.S. medical students to pursue full-time research training within the UCLA Department of Head and Neck Surgery for 9 months. Financial support is provided by an NIH-sponsored R25 Mentored Research Pathway for Otolaryngology Residents and Medical Students, through the National Institute of Deafness and Communication Disorders.
Students must demonstrate outstanding academic and personal achievements, have previous research experience, and have an interest in academic head and neck surgery. Students must be dedicated to fostering equity, diversity, and inclusion in healthcare professions.
