Broad Medical Fellowship Program

The Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT offers research opportunities in genomic medicine specifically for underrepresented minority medical students through a grant funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute. Broad scientists use cutting edge technologies to study cancer, psychiatric disease, infectious disease, metabolism, population genetics, and other topics. This research promises to generate new approaches to molecular diagnostics and new therapeutic approaches to medicine. Broad Medical Fellows will be an integral part of these efforts. Additional information on the Broad’s scientific programs can be found at

Each medical fellow will be matched with a Broad mentor based on their academic background and research interests. In addition to working on an original research project, the fellows will also participate in group meetings and discussions with Broad authors of recent leading publications.
