A physician mentor will direct each student's Clinical Research Internship Study Program (CRISP) learning experience for the research project. The Institutional Review Board (IRB) approves all research projects.

To successfully complete the program, students must:

  • Comply with all program and institutional policies
  • Participate in an ongoing research investigation
  • Develop skills in research methodology
  • Participate in assigned educational activities
  • Present a written summary and oral presentation of student research at the end of the program

CRISP students work on various research topics. Below are some examples of previous projects:

  • Injury in marathon runners
  • Aortic aneurysm and smoking
  • Liver transplant in patients older than 70
  • Warfarin anticoagulation in acute intracranial hemorrhage
  • Screw placement in the spine using 3-D images
