The Mentorship experience
The intensive mentorship portion of this research experience reflects each scholar's interests and career goals as an Emergency Care Researcher. As they begin the training program, scholars meet with several potential mentors and, with the guidance of program leadership, select two primary mentors:
- A research mentor whose content and methodological expertise match the interests of the scholar; and
- A career development mentor whose career trajectory has been similar to the intended trajectory of the scholar.
Scholars can draw from a mentorship network of over 45 seasoned researchers from 20 departments, divisions, institutes and schools within OHSU – allowing research foci from bench-to-bedside, to community, to policy-making, in a broad range of content areas.
