You should have a computer in your assigned research area that your preceptor will have available for your use. Should you not have access to a computer, please contact Program Administrator.
If you are not a Vanderbilt student, you will be assigned a Vanderbilt University "VU Net ID" and password. Your VU Net ID and password will be used only for your Vanderbilt Medical Center email access. This will not be the same as your user name and password for the Student Research Training Program web site.
You will be assigned an e-mail address through Vanderbilt University Medical Center. This is the email address that will be used for all program announcements while you are here, so please check it often.
You will be given your VU Net ID and password during your orientation meeting with the Program Administrator and Dr. Powers.
Instructions for accessing your VU Email
As soon as you are assigned a VU e-mail address, you are placed on the Medical Center mailing list. This will cause you to receive all of the e-mail notifications that Medical Center Communications sends out to the mailing list, and many of these e-mails may not be relevant to you.
The Medical Student Summer Research Training Program is supported by the Vanderbilt Short Term Research Training Program for Medical Students (NIH grant DK007383) and the Vanderbilt Diabetes Research and Training Center (NIH grant DK20593).
