The annual Summer Research Education in Cardiovascular Conditions (RECV) Program introduces students to research at an early stage in their careers with a goal of inspiring them to see that research can be an exciting and fulfilling career.
This year, we will hold a virtual Summer Research Education in Cardiovascular Conditions Program (RECV) from June 7, 2021 through August 13, 2021. All undergraduate and masters’ level students are invited to apply to this full time (35 hours/week) virtual program. Selected students will receive a stipend for their participation.
Applications for the 2021 cohort are currently closed.
The application for the 2022 cohort will be announced in February 2022.
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.
What past participants said they enjoyed about the Summer RECV program:
“Getting exposure to amazing research ideas and mentors and making meaningful connections”
“I really liked learning about research and that I was able to have a project of my own”
“Having the opportunity to work with mentors and work on a systematic review”
“Lectures of specialists from different fields and backgrounds. Variety of topics introduced (e.g. data science, qualitative research, etc.).
“My interest in research was piqued, and I have dived into research at my college since the program”
The 2021 Summer RECV program is funded by the National Institutes of Health National Heart Lung and Blood Institute.

NYU Meyers offers the rare opportunity for students to learn from field experts using novel educational techniques and programs in one of the top nursing schools in the nation. Graduates leave well-rounded and well prepared for clinical practice, policy, academia, and beyond.
When I was a PhD student here, I was truly mentored by wonderful faculty. I want other students to have that experience.
Students receive a first-class education at NYU Meyers using the newest technologies and innovative teaching strategies, like Design Thinking. They learn in a safe and diverse environment where they can thrive and feel that they belong. There are also many opportunities to visit NYU's global sites and impact communities around the world.
As part of the NYU Meyers T-42 doctoral training program, our students are prepared to be leaders in occupational and environmental health nursing as researchers, educators, and industry experts. We are the only such training program in the region, and our graduates are part of an essential pipeline of OEHN experts ensuring the health and safety of workers across the country.
During my PhD program at NYU Meyers, I developed strong supportive mentoring relationships with the faculty that enriched my educational experience. I came back after a post-doctoral fellowship because of my continuing relationships with my faculty mentors.
NYU Meyers provides a strong hands-on learning environment for applied nursing research, statistical training, and global health exposure.
