The Student Investigator Network of Expertise (NoE) includes:

  • Undergraduate, post-bac, graduate students, and interns/residents learning implementation science

Mentorship opportunities

The NoE is committed to facilitating the advancement of students who aim to focus their work on implementation science. We do this by showcasing Student investigator work at SIRC conferences, assisting Student Investigators to present at Implementation Development Workshops, offering mentoring/networking opportunities at SIRC conferences, and we have set up a mentoring program for student investigators to be paired with and mentored by a more advanced implementation scientist in the New Investigator NoE.

What does participation in the NoE mentorship program involve?

  • Quarterly phone meetings with your mentor
  • Opportunity to email your mentor with questions throughout the year
  • Potential to meet in-person at SIRC (or other) conferences
