Formal training in mentorship, career development, and team science are critical to the successful transition from mentored training to independent research.
The MICHR Career Development Academy is designed to enhance leadership, team building, and career development for mentors and scholars in the KL2 and Postdoctoral Translational Scholars programs. Scholars accepted in one of MICHR education programs (KL2, PTSP, or Js) are required to attend two career development events each year while enrolled in their MICHR program.
