Medical Student Research Opportunities


More than one-third of Stritch students participate in formal research programs.  Many more are engaged in other, less formal, research opportunities.  Students are encouraged to participate in research because evidence demonstrates that such students:


  • Become better physicians through their understanding and practice of evidence-based medicine;
  •  Are more likely to contribute to that evidence by their own research contributions; and
  •  Are more competitive for desirable residency and fellowship programs.
