Career Oversight Committee

Scholars in YCCI’s educational programs are mentored and monitored by one or more senior faculty members from their department. In addition to these primary mentors, each Scholar has a Career Oversight Committee, an assigned team of senior faculty members from various departments who provide an unbiased perspective on Scholars’ progress and career development and make suggestions about future directions for both research and grant proposals. This integrated program led by an interdisciplinary team of mentors provides scholars with a significantly broader grounding in the essential elements of clinical and translational research. Scholars meet with their committee at least twice a year and committee members also attend Research in Progress meetings at which Scholars present their research.

Members of each committee are chosen based on the breadth, depth, and quality of their clinical and translational research, on their track records in mentoring young scientists, and on their shared commitment to developing an exciting intellectual environment for YCCI trainees.
