Expectations for Scholars
The Paul Calabresi Clinical Oncology Training Program (Training Program) provides
a wonderful opportunity for Calabresi Scholars to jump start their careers as
oncology clinical researchers with protected time for research and training.
We have developed a number of expectations for the Calabresi Scholars that will
help ensure success.
- Each Calabresi Scholar is expected to develop a training plan with the help
of the appointed Mentor Committee.
- In the first year, each Calabresi Scholar is expected to complete didactic
training leading to a Masters in Clinical Research. Calabresi Scholars who
already have a master’s level degree similar to the Masters in Clinical
Research may submit evidence and descriptions of prior coursework. The Advisory
Committee for the Training Program will assign someone to review this coursework
and develop a plan to ensure that the Calabresi Scholar has didactic education
in all essential competencies for clinical research.
- In the final two years, each Calabresi Scholar will write and implement
a clinical research project. Progress on the project will be reviewed by the
Mentor Committee and the Advisory Committee.
- For the remaining 25% of time not supported by the Training Program,
each Calabresi Scholar will meet the requirements and needs of the University
of Maryland, Baltimore department with whom he/she has his/her assistant professor
level faculty appointment.
