2013 Boston Retreat

The 2013 Boston Retreat was a 3-day retreat for training and project development for RAMS Scholars and Mentors that included didactic sessions, one-on-one mentoring with National Advisory Committee (NAC) mentors to discuss their project, and tutorials from a biostatistician to develop an analytic plan. It began the mentoring relationship between the RAMS scholars and NAC mentor, facilitated the development of the scholar’s research project, provided training on research methodology and engaged institutional mentors in the development of the RAMS scholar’s research project.
