Consider applying to serve on the Study Team Workforce Development Working Group (The Working Group) to share your knowledge, experience, and skills related to study team training and education at the University of Michigan. The group is organized by the Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR).
Applications are now being accepted for the two-year MICHR-K Award. The award provides protected time for a clinician scientist to focus on conducting clinical research. Early career faculty with an MD or clinical PhD who are interested in obtaining mentored training in translational sciences are encouraged to apply.
To address the need for consistent training, assessment, and measures of competency, MICHR has collaborated with three universities to launch the DIAMOND portal.
The portal is a pioneering digital collection that serves as a database for members of clinical and translational research study teams to share and access training and assessment resources.
Members of the U-M community who are involved in or interested in mentoring are invited to a November 29 forum on Culturally Aware Mentorship. During the forum, seven faculty members who contribute enormously to the research environment at U-M will be honored with the 2018 Distinguished Clinical and Translational Research Mentor Award.
Starting in September, MICHR will offer Research Basics training online. Research Basics is currently a three-part series for Study Team members who work in health-related research. The new online portions of this training will soon be freely available, anytime, anywhere with internet access and will be replacing parts of the in-person training.
This program is aimed at students currently enrolled in any health-related professional degree program. It is designed to introduce students in health-related professional degree programs to research early in their course of study,
MICHR is offering a free course for current K-grant awardees, focusing on responsible conduct of research (RCR). This series will help participants identify and address RCR issues in their own research and will satisfy related requirements of the NIH K23 application. Participants will receive mentoring from faculty experienced in RCR areas.
Have you and your research benefited from the support of a mentor? Does your mentor have a track record of successfully mentoring students, fellows, or early career faculty at the University of Michigan? Consider nominating your mentor for the 2017 Distinguished Clinical & Translational Research Award.
