Education is a life-long process, and the Training Core encourages its students to seek out new challenges and activities to enrich their educational experience, whether they are at the undergraduate, graduate, or post-doctoral level. This philosophy has engendered a large group of successful trainees. The University of Arizona SRP Center (UA SRP) provided several opportunities to trainees, such as presenting at local and national meetings, working closely with communities that are impacted by proximity to contamination, and meeting and working with mining industry stakeholders to understand health, safety, and environmental issues from their perspective and to develop innovative solutions to the challenges that industry faces. Other opportunities include working with cutting edge scientists on undergraduate, thesis, dissertation, and post-doctoral research, and developing writing skills by writing manuscripts, applying for scholarships, drafting grants or reports. The most popular activity of the Core continues to be the participation of trainees in a research translation or community engagement activity. The success of the Training Core in meeting its objectives is best illustrated by its continuing track record of placement of UA SRP graduates in employment positions that have direct impact on human and environmental health.
