Summer Training in Academic Research and Scholarship
Illuminating Your Future in Healthcare


The BWH STARS Program recruits underrepresented minority (URM) college and first-year medical students from around the US into an eight-week mentored summer program. The students participate in intensive hands-on training in research methods and practice directly in the labs of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School’s leading researchers. The program is hosted by the Office for Multicultural Faculty Careers (OMC) which is part of the Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (CFDD).
