Scholarship Oversight Committee

A formal Scholarship Oversight Committee (SOC) is established to mentor and guide each fellow in the first year. The SOC is composed of at least 3 individuals i.e., the primary mentor supervising the fellow’s scholarly activity, a mentor for the fellow’s clinical and general career development, and a mentor with expertise in the particular area of scholarship that is being pursued by the fellow. There may be additional mentors who are also members of SOC. The specific goals of SOC are:

  • To meet with the fellow a minimum of 2 times per year
  • Complete evaluation/progress reports after each meeting to assess progress and detail accomplishments
  • Review and approve the proposed research plan for first year fellows
  • Evaluate the fellow's written product of scholarly activity
