Eight-week summer scholarships for medical students to stimulate their interest in medical mycology
To increase the scientific awareness of medical students and stimulate their interest in medical mycology, we provide travel scholarships (2 per annum) to the highest calibre medical students in Exeter. These students spend 8 weeks at a world-leading national or international laboratory at the end of their fourth year, engaging in cutting edge research in medical mycology. This program has been trialled in other disciplines with resounding success, being transformational for these individuals, expanding their horizons and inspiring their enthusiasm for research. In addition, to help building future capacity in the UK clinical academic system, these scholarships will be used to promote strategic links between the MRC CMM and other major national and international centres in this field. Moreover, these students will be excellent candidates for Clinical Training Fellowships and PhD studentships in the future. The students will produce a report about their research experience and give an oral presentation at the Annual Academic Careers Evening, the centrepiece of the clinical student academic development calendar.
