• Teachers who are also competent as investigators are no longer confined to the basic science departments of medical schools but are found in the clinical departments as well. Students can obtain desirable research experience by various informal and formal arrangements, which include programs of summer research or even a year of full-time research in a laboratory of the student's choice after he has finished his preclinical courses. The financial problems can be solved. Grants to institutions that wish to further student research training are available through federal agencies and private foundations. These permit the universities to pay students enough for time spent on research to compensate them when they forego higher-paying work of other kinds.
