allopathic medical schools

Most schools permit medical students to take a year off without
penalty. This time may be spent in research laboratories, community
health service projects, or taking courses in other disciplines-for
example, public health or law. Funding is obtained on an individual
basis from scholarships, private foundations, or investigators' research
grants. For more information, inquire at your school's career
counseling office. Harvard Medical School's WebWeekly article,
"Time Out: Why Some Students Take Time Off from Medical
School" explores why two first-year medical students took time off.

The Clinical Research Training Program at the National Institutes of
Health is a small, year-long program designed to attract the most
creative, research-oriented medical and dental students to NIH.
Applicants must be currently enrolled in medical or dental school and
have completed, or be in the process of completing, one year of
clinical rotations. Candidates in M.D./Ph.D. programs are also eligible
to apply.

The National Institutes of Health's National Institute of General
Medicine Sciences (NIGMS) supports a combined M.D./Ph.D.
program called the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP).
MSTP provides training in basic and clinical sciences to highly
motivated students with outstanding research and academic potential.
Students are awarded tuition and stipend. While some universities
sponsor M.D./Ph.D. students without NIGMS sponsorship, the most
well recognized programs are MSTPs.
