The INSPIRE Program aims to provide students with research training and practical experiences in child health research during the academic year. Students are matched with a mentor and contribute to a project as part of a research team.

Interested in developing research skills and learning more about how research is conducted in a clinical setting? You'll be eligible if you are a:

  • Prospective UBC Directed Studies Student
    INSPIRE can help match students with potential supervisors, but students are responsible for ensuring they complete all course specific requirements. Only supervisors with a UBC faculty position are eligible to take on a directed studies student.
  • Undergraduate Student (or recent graduate) Interested In Pediatric Research
    Students must be available max 4-6 hrs/week. Students currently registered in any undergraduate or college training program, or those that are within 3 years of completion of a high school or post-secondary degree are eligible to apply.
