For most medical students, the summer between first and second year is the only time they will spend doing full-time research. Dr. Chung will give a number of presentations first semester about how to find a research mentor, so don’t worry about that too much. There are faculty in every department who are looking for med students to mentor during the summer. However, some faculty are more “med student friendly” than others as far as publishing, mentoring, etc. so I would suggest finding out if past medical students have worked with the professor you’re interested in doing research with, and speaking with them.
