The Indian Council of Medical Research initiated the Short Term Studentship Program in1979 in order to promote interest and aptitude for research among medical undergraduates. The main objective of this program is to provide an opportunity to undergraduate medical students to familiarize themselves with research methodology and techniques by being associated for a short duration with their seniors on ongoing research program or by undertaking independent projects. This may serve as an incentive for them to take up research as a career in the future. The Guide/ Institution must provide the student with all facilities (kits, reagents &other requirements) for carrying out research.
The value of the studentship will be Rs. 5,000/- per month for 2 months’ duration (Rs. 10,000/- only) and is meant to be a stipend for the student. This is paid only after completion of research and approved of final report. Costs of research must be borne by Institution/ Medical College where research is conducted. A certificate will be issued and posted to Principal’s office after 6-8 months of completion of research.
