Transplant Summer Program (Virtual)

Eligible undergraduate students and medical trainees within the Ajmera Transplant Centre at UHN, SickKids transplant centre, and St. Michael’s transplant program can apply for the Transplant Summer Program offered by the University of Toronto Transplant Institute. The transplant summer program offers students an 8-week (June 3, 2021 – August 5, 2021) experience in a laboratory or clinical setting in the University of Toronto transplant institute community. This is a great platform for students to work with distinguished faculty members, develop sound research methodologies and gain excellent mentorship. The program will conclude with a Summer Research Day on August 5th where students will be given the opportunity to showcase their research findings through oral presentations.

Students are required to secure their own supervisor/principal investigator by contacting supervisor(s) directly, before submitting their application. Students are expected to be present for the complete duration of the program.
