Will I be eligible to participate in UVA research opportunities on the main campus?
Yes — any Inova Campus students who would prefer to complete research work in Charlottesville are still eligible to do so if their clinical schedules permit it. Data collection and analysis is often done electronically with the convenience of video teleconferencing for any necessary collaboration.
Is there funding available?
Yes! Students can apply for the Inova Summer Research Grant to help cover costs of participating in the program.
