Each student, or Mentee, will be matched with a team of three (3) Mentors. The team will consist of one primary Mentor (senior researcher in academia, public or private sector), one secondary Mentor (doctoral student or senior researcher without an active project), and one tertiary Mentor (researcher at Mentee's institution).
The primary Mentor must have an active research project that relates to a health issue affecting the Hispanic community that the Mentee can contribute to. Teams should e-meet at least once a month for one hour via video/phone conferencing to ensure that the Mentee is making progress on agreed-upon research.
To supplement the research experience, Mentees will participate in bi-monthly online lectures that focus on research methods, research careers, and disseminating research. At the end of the program, Mentees will submit a research product: abstract, research poster, and give an oral presentation. For a complete list of requirements,CLICK HERE.
