Vice President's Clinical and Translational (VPCAT) Research Scholars Program
The VPCAT Research Scholars Program has been designed to offer intensive mentorship and support to early-stage faculty members engaged in clinical and translational research in transitioning to accomplished, funded principal investigators.
VPCAT leverages the resources of our institution to augment departmental resources in support of junior faculty investigators using a multi-level mentoring matrix model that includes self, scientific, peer, senior, and staff mentorship. During the 2-year program, scholars receive training in leadership, grant writing, and research career development designed to create empowered principal investigators.
This is a competitive program that incorporates:
Formal and informal mentoring
Structured curriculum focused on leadership competencies and essential knowledge and practical skills to be an effective clinical and translational researcher
Access to resources to facilitate appropriate study design, collection of pilot data, and preparation and submission of competitive grant applications.
