Mentored research training is part of the long tradition in the Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Immunology, where multidisciplinary research teams come together to address critical clinical questions.
- All post-doctoral trainees in the research track choose a faculty mentor, based on their interest and the mentor’s expertise, who will guide them through their research training.
- Opportunities are available in both clinical and basic research
- Training in research methods, statistical methods, IRB procedures, grant writing, data analysis and interpretation, research ethics, and writing skills.
- Fellows have access to the formal research training program, Translational and Clinical Research Curriculum (TCRC) through the Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute (TraCS).
- The Research Core Curriculum is designed as a means for trainees to gain access to coursework in core competencies that are viewed critical to the success of an academic clinical-translation researcher. These include:
- Appreciation of the multidisciplinary roles of various research team members and elements of highly effective teams
- Completion of Responsible Conduct of Research training
- Understanding of methodological and analytical strategies resulting in appropriately designed protocols
- Participation in professional development activities that teach skills such as scientific writing, oral presentation, grant writing, and mentoring.
