Protocols and mentors

We ensure our fellows have a close relationship with a faculty preceptor. The development of an acceptable research protocol is fundamental and, following a review of the proposal at different levels, the investigation is initiated.

Through the successful construction of a protocol and execution of a project, you:

  • Clarify your objectives
  • Develop a plausible hypothesis
  • Understand experimental design
  • Become familiar with the theoretical and practical aspects of the methodology you employ
  • Accumulate and analyze data accurately and effectively
  • Describe results, providing an abstract for presentation at a national or an international meeting
  • Deliver a well-organized presentation, including the effective use of audiovisual techniques
  • Publish the results of your work in reputable peer-reviewed scientific journals

In the first six months of the fellowship, you are presented with research packets prepared by our faculty which include their current and upcoming research projects, biosketch, and a list of prior mentees and outcomes. In the fall, a two-day research retreat and academic skills workshop takes place where third-year fellows present the outcomes of their research to the division and first-year fellows meet with their chosen mentors. The research committee reviews all research proposals and provides constructive feedback to fellows and their mentors.
