  • Complete an independent research project;
  • Attend weekly research seminars;
  • Participate in professional development workshops designed to facilitate the preparation of competitive applications for graduate/medical school; and
  • Present their findings at a competitive poster session.

The program will run from Monday, June 10 – Friday, August 92019.

An online application for the 2019 SURP will be available via the SURP website in mid-November 2018.
