Progress Reports

Year:   2019  2018  2017  2016  2015  2014  2013 

Major accomplishments for this reporting cycle include development of four new professional development activities or resources for OSU SRC trainees: 1) a new online software system that allows trainees to select from a menu of available professional development training and experiential learning activities (this tool also allows effective tracking of trainee progress, and provides assessment feedback to Training Core leadership); 2) a new program to provide pilot project funding directly to trainees (these pilot projects are designed to promote trainee-initiated collaborative research projects); 3) a new program to encourage trainee collaborations by providing support for professional development externships; and 4) engagement of SRP trainees in Training Core planning, implementation and assessment through forming a new Trainee Leadership Committee. Several new professional development exercises were implemented included requiring all trainees to participate at the annual External Advisory Committee meeting. Additionally, all trainees are required and have participated in grant and manuscript writing workshops. Many trainees won awards for research papers and presentations at national, regional and local meetings, and one trainee was awarded a KC Donnelly Externship, and two KC Donnelly Externship awardees from the previous reporting cycle presented their research at the SRP Annual Meeting. Seven new pre-doctoral and one new postdoctoral trainees were recruited, and six matriculated out of the training core by completing their graduate degrees.
