The annual Summer Research Education in Cardiovascular Conditions (RECV) Program introduces students to research at an early stage in their careers with the goal of inspiring them to see that research can be an exciting and fulfilling career.
This year, the virtual Summer Research Education in Cardiovascular Conditions Program (RECV) is from June 5, 2023, through August 11, 2023. Undergraduate and master’s level students participate in this full-time (35 hours/week) virtual program. Selected students receive a stipend for their participation.
The deadline for applications will be March 23, 2023, at 11:59 PM ET. Apply today!
Participants in the program attend weekly seminars and work with investigators on a variety of research topics. The program focuses on cardiovascular conditions and related topics including health disparities, ethics, genomics, clinical research, and evidence-based practice. In addition, students have an opportunity to participate in research experiences using remote technology as well as be a part of writing groups that develop peer-reviewed publications. At the end of the program, students participate in a virtual poster session.
