About the Office of Medical Student Research

Since 2001, we’ve assisted hundreds of medical students find and participate in fully funded research at WUSM.

The Office of Medical Student Research (OMSR) is a centralized office designed to help medical students who wish to participate in research; we serve as the initial contact point for medical students who are interested in exploring research opportunities.

Under the leadership of Dr. Chung over the past 16 years, the percentage of rising second year medical students (W2 medical students) participating in summer research experiences has increased from 23% to 90%.

We’re pleased to meet you

The OMSR is directed by Koong-Nah Chung, PhD, and coordinated by Roz Robinson. Dean Chung plays a crucial role as a liaison between faculty and medical students, and takes an active role in matching medical students with research mentors.
