Welch Center Research in Progress (RIP) Seminar
Welch Center Research in Progress (RIP) seminar meets twice a month during the academic year and provides an opportunity for trainees to present their planned or ongoing research.
The goal of the seminar is to provide a forum for students and fellows in the Cardiovascular and Clinical Epidemiology Track to present their planned or ongoing research and to obtain feedback from faculty and peers. The focus of the trainee seminars will be on issues related to the design of epidemiologic studies, data collection, statistical analysis, and drawing causal inferences from epidemiologic studies. Trainees receive early faculty feedback on research projects and gain skills and confidence in delivering research presentations. Master's and doctoral students in the track of Cardiovascular and Clinical Epidemiology are required to attend. PhD students in the track are required to present their dissertation proposals at this seminar. The seminar occasionally hosts presentations or panel discussion by faculty on topics related to career and professional development and research skills.
