K12 Eligibility K12 Eligibility Presentation Transcript

  • Career Advancement Program for Clinical Research Scholars (CAPS) ORIENTATION TBS
  • Opening Remarks Russell V. Luepker, MD, MS Mayo Professor Division of Epidemiology & Community Health School of Public Health CAPS Program Director
  • NIH Roadmap and CAPS Program Overview Russell V. Luepker, MD, MS Mayo Professor Division of Epidemiology & Community Health School of Public Health CAPS Program Director
  • NIH Roadmap Goal Goal of K12 NIH Roadmap: ...to educate future leaders of multidisciplinary clinical research and speed the translation of research discoveries into improved patient care.
  • NIH Roadmap Re-engineering the Clinical Research Enterprise Research Teams of the Future New Pathways to Discovery
    • Difficulty recruiting and retaining clinical researchers
    • Rising overhead costs and regulatory demands
    • Limitations due to NIH funding mechanisms, review, and program structure
    • Lack of a viable career pathway deters investigators from conducting clinical and translational research – impedes basic research results from entering into clinical practice
    How Did We Get Here?
  • Challenges of Interdisciplinary Research
    • The current system of academic advancement favors the independent investigator
    • Most institutions house scientists in discrete departments
    • Interdisciplinary science requires interdisciplinary peer-review
    • Project management and oversight is currently performed by discrete ICs
    • Interdisciplinary research teams take time to assemble and require unique resources
  • Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Career Development Program
    • Roadmap K12 Program is designed to increase the national pool of clinician-scientists from many disciplines
    • The program differs in its goal by supporting career development of the clinical research team
    • The clinical research team includes: nurses, sociologists, pharmacologists, biostatisticians, and epidemiologists, in addition to physicians, dentists, and other scientists.
    • Funding for up to 5 years includes didactic and practical training in design, conduct, and analysis of clinical research
    • Each clinical research scholar may be recruited from within a grantee institution or externally and has two mentors
  • CAPS Program Goals
    • CAPS is more than a training program.
    • Goals:
    • to train clinical researchers
    • to launch Scholars’ careers

  • CAPS Mentoring & Evaluation
    • Why the emphasis on mentoring in this program
    • What do we know about effective mentoring
    • How the CAPS program facilitates an effective mentoring approach
    • How the CAPS program evaluated
  • Why Emphasis on Mentoring?
    • Faculty with mentors demonstrate higher levels of success on the following factors:
      • Research productivity (Bland and Schmitz 1986, Byrne and Keefe 2002)
      • Professional socialization and interactions with colleagues (Corcoran and Clark 1984)
      • Salary levels; and satisfaction with salary and promotion (Melicher 2000)
      • Teaching effectiveness, evidenced by declines in teaching anxiety and improved student ratings of teaching effectiveness (Williams 1991).
  • Not all Mentoring is alike
    • Effective faculty mentoring is a result of:
      • Clarity of purpose
      • Systematic tasks and activities that the mentor and mentee do together – not personal chemistry
      • Early and enduring mentoring is most beneficial
      • Regular meetings of the mentoring pairs/teams - which may require “nudging”
      • Using mentors from outside the mentee’s department is very effective
    • (Boyle and Boice, 1998)
  • CAPS Mentoring Teams
    • Mentoring teams include experienced clinical investigators
    • Teams are multidisciplinary and include a biostatistician
    • Mentors responsibilities are clearly delineated
