During the summer months the Joint Motion Program offers a number of Summer Reserach Studenthsips. 

Program Goals:

  • to promote student participation in musculoskeletal research
  • to have students present their results at a summer research symposium
  • to contribute to publications in peer-reviewed journals, and
  • to encourage students to consider further careers in musculoskeletal health research.


  • Held for a 12 week period
  • All undergraduate students are eligible to apply

Expectations for summer trainees: (undergraduate students)

JuMP STIHR trainees are expected to:

  • participate in regular meetings over the summer to discuss their projects. 
  • prepare and present a power point slide show at the JuMP Summer Research Symposium in August. 

Students will be selected based upon the following criteria

  1. Academic standing
  2. Interest in and potential for a career in musculoskeletal health research
  3. Publication Record
  4. Sound research hypothesis and methods
  5. Appropriate project for student participation in a 12 week program.
  6. Significance of the research and likelihood of publication in a peer-reviewed journal

Students who have previously participated in this program can apply for support for a second year, however justification from the  mentor should be provided indicating the student’s performance in the previous year and indicating the benefits to continued support from the program.
