VPCAT Research Scholars are selected through a competitive application process each fall; accepted scholars participate in a two-year program designed to provide leadership competencies and develop the essential research knowledge and practical skills to be an effective clinical or translational researcher.
The two-year competitive program incorporates:
- Formal and informal mentoring
- Structured curriculum focused on leadership competencies and essential knowledge and practical skills to be an effective clinical or translational researcher
- Access to resources to facilitate appropriate study design, collection of pilot data and preparation and submission of competitive grant applications.
A mentoring team consisting of a Scientific mentor, a VPCAT Senior mentor, Peer mentors and Staff mentors support each VPCAT Scholar. Scholars have access to biostatisticians in the Center for Clinical & Translational Science (CCTS) and grant submission specialists. These resources facilitate appropriate study design, collection of pilot data and the preparation and submission of competitive grant applications.
