Learning Opportunities

In order to effectively mentor trainees in research methods and support their academic success, we recommend at least one-year fellowship. However, trainees are welcome to join our group as observers in order to learn more about patient oriented research through other mechanisms. These shorter-term research electives do not typically result in scientific publications.

One-year fellowship:

  • Publish manuscripts, attend and present research findings at conferences, learn public speaking and negotiation skills

One month research experience elective:

  • Learn key research activities, participate in grand rounds, attend PORT & lab meetings, practice public speaking, create research posters, prepare for interviews, edit personal statements
