Completion Requirements

Students must submit a final completion for a Medical Scholars Research project:

  1. always prior to graduation

  2. prior to beginning another Medical Scholars Research fellowship

Completion includes:

  1. An oral poster presentation of the results or progress of the project must be made at the annual Stanford Medical Student Research Symposium. A presentation at a regional, national, or an international meeting also fulfills this requirement. A presentation at a local meeting with the following in attendance (faculty, postdoctoral fellow, or research associate) would require pre-approval by your mentor and SC Director, and is suggested only for projects with insufficient results.

  2. The report (due no later than 6 months after the last quarter of funding) should be submitted online in manuscript format (hypothesis, methods, results, bibliography) with emphasis on the results. The electronic file need not be extensive and may take the form of a progress report if time does not allow for the completion of the project and if the advisor deems that substantial work has been completed. If the work is being published, a paper can be the final report if the student made significant contributions to the paper.

  3. The report (due no later than 6 months after the last quarter of funding) should be uploaded via MS Online. It will go through a similar process as to when the funding was applied for, with approval by the Faculty Advisor, an uploaded mentor letter of summary, and submitted to the Medical Scholars Program Coordinator through the MS Online system.

     

    Note, Travel Scholars must also present their request for reimbursement no later than 6 months after the last quarter of funding.
