Mentoring and growth

The Office of Scholarly, Academic & Research Mentoring (OSARM) was created in 2010 to facilitate scholarly and academic growth among junior faculty members in the Department of Medicine.

Our goals are:

  • implement a consistent, structured mentoring program for all junior faculty members
  • help junior faculty with their pilot research funds and those applying for new awards
  • identify and lead a junior faculty "incubator" group, who receive more intensive mentoring, data management and biostatistical support and assistance with travel to present at national meetings
  • provide biostatistical mentoring and analytic support for the research and scholarly projects of all OSARM faculty members
