Sarnoff Fellowship Program 2019 for Medical Students in USA (Fully Funded)

The cornerstone of the Sarnoff Fellowship is the special interaction between the medical students and the laboratory Preceptor with scientific and mentoring expertise. This close relationship, developed during the course of the Fellowship, and continuing throughout the Fellow’s career, is enhanced by additional interactions with the Sarnoff Scientific Committee and Sarnoff Alumni. These experiences cultivate a life-long appreciation and enthusiasm for cardiovascular investigation, leading many to choose a career in cardiovascular research. The Foundation’s investment in the Sarnoff Fellow is life-long.
The mission of Sarnoff Cardiovascular Research Foundation is to develop medical students throughout their careers into the next generation of leaders in cardiovascular innovation, research, and medicine by providing mentored research experiences and lifelong community.
The fellowship program offers a one-year monetary support and a lifetime academic support the medical students living in US and in other countries who are interested in cardiovascular research.
