Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Bronx, New York)
The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers a unique opportunity to work for the summer in a research laboratory at one of the world's top-ranking scientific institutions. The program is specifically designed for students considering a research career in the biomedical sciences. Approximately 50 students from all over the country come to Einstein, live on the campus, and participate in "hypothesis-driven" research in their area of interest. Summer positions are available in labs in every area of biomedical research. SURP students also attend weekly undergraduate level seminars on research topics, and also participate in career development workshops and a forum on ethical issues in science and medicine. At the end of the summer, SURP students present a poster describing their research at the annual SURP symposium on the Einstein campus. All SURP students receive a stipend housing, and a full range of social activities including attending a Broadway show, a baseball game, Bronx Zoo Day, student-faculty barbeques and various outings.
