The Weill-Ithaca Summer Experience in Research (WISER) is a seven-week summer program on health disparities and inequities research offered at Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) in New York City. The program provides participants with 6-8 hours of field experience per week in addition to opportunities to develop basic skills in conducting translational and transformative disparities/health equity research. Participants also gain important networking and professional development experience with diverse medical students and faculty who are engaged in biomedical research.

WISER is a collaboration between Weill Cornell Medical College’s Office of Faculty Diversity, Cornell University’s Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives and Biology Scholars Programs.

Applications are available in late-January and are typically due by late-February.
