Mentoring Support for Junior Investigators
Spectrum support for Clinical Research is divided into four stages, the first of which is DESIGNING YOUR STUDY.
This stage includes tasks and activities that occur early in the design & development of a study, such as:
- biostatistics consultations
- informatics consultations
- bioethics consultations
- identifying co-investigators and collaborators
- exploring funding opportunities
Spectrum mentoring efforts are intended to 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 a Council of Mentors for junior investigators.
