Research

Simulation Summer Studentship:

This studentship was established by the Clinical Simulation Centre. This is awarded annually to one or two outstanding undergraduate students in the School of Medicine, enabling them to conduct research in an area that will further simulation education. This studentship helps to prepare students for careers in academic medicine. Award will be made by the Clinical Simulation Centre. Value $5,000. Research must be performed in Kingston between the months of May and August.

Each student awarded a studentship is also required to participate in the Medical Student Research Symposium (MSRS) on Wednesday, September 20, 2017.

Please email your resume and an abstract of the proposed research to Kim Garrison at kim.garrison@queensu.ca and ask your supervisor to also please email Kim to confirm she/he will be supervising you for this research by March 17, 2017.
