The OUHSC Graduate College hosts four summer undergraduate research programs (SURPs) aimed at preparing and encouraging undergraduate students to pursue careers in biomedical research or health related sciences. These 9-week programs are designed to offer outstanding undergraduate students intensive, hands-on research opportunities in the laboratories of select OUHSC biomedical faculty mentors. These programs introduce students to the rigorous academic preparation required for biomedical research careers. Tuition is waived and a stipend provided, three hours college credit is earned and housing is provided. The three programs currently housed on the OUHSC campus are:
- The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE)
- The Native American Research Center for Health (NARCH) Student Development Program
- The IDeA Network for Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) Summer Research Program
- The Cancer Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE)
Detailed information on each program and application deadlines are found on the Graduate College website at Summer Undergraduate Research.
