At WMed, there are an array of opportunities for students to work closely with resident physicians and faculty on research projects and be a part of authoring research articles that further medical knowledge and innovation.

Most recently, students in the medical school’s inaugural Class of 2018 and the Class of 2019 authored and helped co-author numerous peer-reviewed articles. Additionally, through the medical school’s Pilot Research Project Support Program, students are actively engaged in several ongoing research projects that have the potential to garner extramural funding.

Students are also heavily involved in the annual Kalamazoo Community Medical and Health Sciences Research Day. At the most recent Research Day in April 2019, 71 students were listed as authors on 67 presentations – 13 oral presentations and 54 poster presentations – out of 125 total presentations – 30 oral presentations and 95 poster presentations.
