All CIP residents meet individually with the CIP Faculty Director at the beginning of junior year to discuss career goals and research plans. Based on these discussions, residents are matched with faculty research mentors to begin planning research projects.
Residents may take advantage of a Mentoring Advisor Board composed of leaders in clinical research within the Harvard Catalyst program and affiliates who can pair top-notch research mentors and projects within their discipline.
CIP residents meet periodically with the Faculty Director to monitor progress in their clinical research endeavors and identify additional resource needs. CIP residents are provided protected research elective time (up to 16 weeks total) during their junior and senior years of residency to conduct clinical research projects with the Faculty Director and/or Mentoring Advisory Board.
