Research Preceptors

MBP complete at least 1000 hours of research in a single laboratory, selecting from more than 80 faculty preceptors. At the end of their first fall quarter, students select a research project based on the research presentations made by faculty preceptors. We create an opportunity for students and faculty engage in one-on-one meetings, eliminating the need for students to reach out to potential preceptors ahead of time.

 

Because of the concise duration of our program, we currently do not offer rotating research labs. Students commit to a single lab and work in that lab until the research requirement has been satisfied.
