student research opportunities
Research is part of who we are, which means we ensure our students can engage in meaningful research alongside expert faculty and clinicians at every level of their academic career if they want to.
As early as your first year, you can start your research journey to begin building your skills and experience or to determine if research is the right fit for you and your career aspirations. You may even have the chance to publish your work.
No matter where your research interests lie, you’ll get the exposure and opportunities you need to stand out when it comes to taking the next step in your academic or professional career.
Research in UHSP’s Centers and Colleges
At every level of your academic career, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty across the University who are pursuing innovative research projects, both in individual laboratories and throughout UHSP’s academic and research centers and colleges.
Through these collaborations, you will gain hands-on experience in the world of research and scholarly activity and be introduced to a wide range of research methodologies. And you’ll benefit from the practice and research knowledge that our faculty contribute to the academic program.
Student Research Symposium
Held on the UHSP campus each spring, the Student Research Symposium gives students the chance to conduct research with faculty and showcase their knowledge and findings via poster and podium presentations. The event also provides the opportunity to practice sharing research at external conferences.
Become an Undergraduate Research Scholar
