Finding Research Opportunities

Finding the right setting to conduct research is extremely important, both for success in the research project and for student satisfaction.

Faculty at Tufts School of Medicine, Tufts Medical Center, Maine Medical Center and our other affiliated hospitals welcome students interested in research.

In some cases, research placements may be arranged at other institutions in the Boston area or elsewhere. To explore these options, speak with the student affairs professionals that support your degree program.

Using online resources that describe faculty research interests is an ideal way to begin your search for a research mentor. The links below describe research ongoing at our school and some of our affiliated institutions.
