Course Directors: Ronnie Guillet, MD, PhD; Robert Holloway, MD; Janine Shapiro, MD

    • Promotion and tenure
    • Examples of successful careers as a basic science researcher, clinical researcher, educator
  • Formulating research questions, research design
    • Working with a statistician more efficiently (concurrent sessions focused on basic science research and clinical research/quality improvement)

    • Advancing your career as an educator
    • Transforming your educational activities into scholarship
    • Development of an educator's portfolio

The format will be an all-day, week-long course rather than weekly or monthly 1-2 hour sessions as has more traditionally been done.  This will allow for more continuity and focus and will foster networking among faculty members. We are asking each participant to commit to attending all sessions.  Certificates of attendance will be provided to the participants, upon completion of evaluation forms both at the end of the week and 6 months later so we can assess the impact and continue to improve the curriculum for subsequent years.

There is no charge for URSMD faculty members
Space is limited and will be on a first come-first serve basis
