The Markin Undergraduate Student Research Program (USRP) in Health & Wellness is a unique program designed specifically for undergraduate students from UCalgary who are interested in the possibilities that lie in health and wellness research. The Markin USRP provides the unique opportunity for students to work alongside leading University of Calgary researchers early on in their post-secondary education. Students choose a faculty mentor who has similar research interests to complete a research project during a four-month session. At the end, students present their research at a symposium. The Markin USRP is one of the few student research programs with an associated studentship that runs during the academic session (fall/winter) as well as in the summer.
