Undergraduate & Medical Student Opportunities

Join us for a summer, a semester, or longer in pursuing insights and experience in transplant surgery as part of an undergraduate or medical student program.


Transplant surgeon Dr. Michael Englesbe co-directs this program for undergraduates and medical students interested in a career in surgery. Opportunities include research projects, job shadowing, mentorship, surgical skills training, and social gatherings.

We typically host 4 to 5 students per semester in this university-wide program that offers undergraduates the chance to participate in research alongside faculty. Students who make a significant contribution to projects are credited alongside the faculty team in published manuscripts.

There are ample opportunities to conduct biomedical research through the Medical School. The Section of Transplant Surgery is a frequent collaborator with U-M’s Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation, one of the many sites for research projects.
