TOPIC: Harvard Research Fellowship for MS3

Harvard Research Fellowship for MS3 1 year 8 months ago #35794

Dr. Scott D. Martin is currently inviting third-year medical students to apply for a Clinical Research Fellowship in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine and Joint Reconstruction at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), a Harvard teaching hospital. This fellowship is awarded to a rising fourth-year medical student who has demonstrated a keen interest in orthopaedics and is a competitive candidate for orthopaedic residency.

This is a wonderful opportunity for a highly-motivated individual to strengthen his or her application for the orthopaedic residency match. The research fellow works directly under Dr. Scott Martin. He or she will function as a research coordinator for any new or ongoing projects. This involves leading his or her own studies, as well as functioning as a co-investigator on collaborative ventures with residents, fellows, and attendings at MGH and other sites, including Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Massachusetts General Health Care Center at Gillette Stadium.

Responsibilities and daily activities include: developing research hypotheses and performing literature reviews; composing research protocols; drafting and submitting IRB proposals; interacting with, recruiting, and examining patients in clinic; collecting, organizing, and analyzing clinical research data; preparing and submitting results for academic publication and presentation to peers. The position also provides the opportunity to be mentored in a clinical setting; to learn and hone clinical exam skills; to observe and partake in surgeries; and to attend lectures and conferences with orthopaedic residents and faculty.

This research position is unique in that the medical student interacts with a nationally-recognized orthopaedic surgeon on a daily basis. The nature of the position makes excellent organizational and communication skills paramount. Applicants are selected based on research experience and medical school performance, as well as enthusiasm and interest. The chosen applicant typically begins the summer after third-year rotations are completed and works for one calendar year before returning to finish their fourth year and apply to residency. The position is salaried with full benefits and interviews will begin in early 2018. Application deadline is February 23, 2018, but it is highly recommended to submit your application before that time, as applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Application materials include a cover letter, CV, and 2x2 headshot. They should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots.
