The HMS Scholars in Medicine (SIM) Program is designed to provide every Harvard medical student with an opportunity to pursue a mentored scholarly experience analyzing a medical or health-related question, issue, or problem in depth. Students can approach issues through a wide range of disciplines in the biomedical sciences, clinical sciences, humanities, arts, or other field. The process of discovery is as important as the outcome; students and their mentors are partners in this process.
Current students at HMS can access the internal Scholars in Medicine site for more information on the scholarly project requirement.
The SMO maintains a robust database of student research and clinical opportunities. Current students can access this database using Harvard Key to log in to eCommons. Once logged in, click the link above again to directly access the database. If you are having trouble with accessing the database, please contact Jasmine Stecker.
