Career Development of Junior Investigators and Other Trainees
Spectrum is creating a fully integrated, University-wide, clinical and translational research community that stimulates and educates all levels of trainees interested in investigational careers focused on human health.
Programs supported by Spectrum target the continuum of trainees from the high school level through junior faculty.
Spectrum mentoring efforts support the career development of junior investigators and other trainees. Spectrum Child Health has a well-developed mentoring program for child health investigators.
Additional efforts are in early development stages, and ultimately will include:
- Council of Mentors for junior investigators
- Mentor matching for potential trainees (to be developed through the Community Academic Profile)
- Searchable trainee database to enable greater understanding of existing trainee efforts and allow for trainee networking opportunities (to be developed through the Community Academic Profile)
