Volunteer Research Opportunities at University of Chicago

Volunteer Research Opportunities at the University of Chicago Hospitals

The section of Hospital Medicine at University of Chicago Hospitals has instituted a formal program whereby IMGs who are transitioning into the US Medical System are given the opportunity to engage in numerous ongoing clinical medical research projects. The program will be directed by Dr. Sameer Badlani, Faculty in the Section of Hospital Medicine.

IMGs who are accepted can expect to gain valuable research credentials during their contribution to research projects, be offered mentorship for Match/interview related issues and cultivate a range of contacts from within the community of physicians at the University. Letters of recommendations will be contingent on the level of the volunteer's commitment and quality of work over the period of 4-6 months. As there are many clinical studies currently running at any given time at the University, it is not possible to go into the specific nature of precisely which area of Medicine one might be able to participate in, but all efforts will be made to induct the volunteers into an area of their interest.

The applicants need to be aware that the University is not offering any form of visa or financial support or commitment. Working in the research program is purely voluntary and does not lead to any publications or guaranteed residency interviews.

We are looking for a group of approximately 8-10 enthusiastic volunteers. We would prefer those candidates that can commit 20-40 hrs week to the University for a period of time not less than 4-6 months. As the training and mentorship of volunteer IMGs would require a considerable investment of time from our side, it is expected that the IMGs will assess their personal and financial situation properly before committing.

Send in your applications via email to Dr. Sameer Badlani at

Please include your updated CV, areas of research that you might be interested in and a cover letter.

The presidency is measured and counted on lines of the national level. The question of the matter and british essay writers is introduced for the raw talent of the society for the development and its sequences for the future times.
