Hi everyone - please consider this opportunity from our colleagues at NYU:
I'm writing to make you aware of a terrific opportunity: SARET'S inaugural Visiting Mentor Development Program in Summer 2020. The application deadline – March 15, 2020 – is fast approaching!
NYU is accepting applications for SARET's Visiting Mentor Development Program. SARET, the NIDA-funded Substance Abuse Research Education and Training program, trains future physicians, nurses, dentists, social workers, and public health professionals in substance use disorder (SUD) research. The Visiting Mentor Development Program offers the opportunity to spend a week in NYC training to become a SARET champion for your institution. Visiting Mentors will receive ongoing technical assistance and guidance, tailored to their institutional context, to help them develop SUD research training programs at their schools/institutions. A 1-page SARET flyer, with sample calendar for the 4-day program, is attached.
The NIDA-funded Substance Abuse Research Education and Training (SARET) program fosters health professions students' lasting engagement in substance use disorder (SUD) research. An interdisciplinary initiative, SARET uses a modular web-based curriculum and mentored research placements to activate the interest of students in schools of medicine, nursing, dentistry, social work, and public health (including at the doctoral and masters levels) in SUD-related research careers. Participating in SARET's mentored research experience has an enduring impact on trainees' interest in SUD research. To develop this capacity at your institution, enroll in SARET's Visiting Mentor Development Program!
