Scientific Careers Research and Development Group

Integration of Theory, Research and Practice


The Careers R&D Group brings together a truly unique combination of individuals, resources and opportunities that allow us to bridge and integrate the full cycle of theoretical modeling, empirical research to test models, and application to ongoing research training.  The expertise of the group ranges from theory and practice of education, teaching and learning, sociology, race and gender studies, laboratory and clinical research, and deep experience with PhD, MD/PhD and MD training. The research training we are studying starts with late undergraduate years, continues through PhD training, and continues into the transitions faced by early PhD and MD faculty.
