First-Year Summer Opportunities

In addition to research and global health experiences, many Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons (VP&S) students use the summer after their first year to explore other opportunities, including Spanish-language immersion, volunteer projects, and leadership roles within premedical pipeline programs.

Resources for Fundamentals summer opportunities can be found on the VP&S Summer Opportunities Site in Courseworks. In addition, the Association of American Medical College provides a list of clinical and research fellowships, internships, summer programs, scholarships, and grants currently available in the U.S. and abroad.
