Research options for Ochsner students
Ochsner Clinical School provides research training opportunities through both formal and informal mechanisms. Students enrolled at the Ochsner Clinical School are encouraged to participate in research-based programs leading to a Research Higher Degree; Master of Philosophy (MPhil), equivalent to a Master of Science in the US or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).
Ochsner medical students not wishing to enrol in a Research Higher Degree are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular/volunteer research activities in MD Years 1 and 2 while at UQ in Brisbane, and during MD Years 3 and 4 at the Ochsner Health System in New Orleans.
