Transition of the VI Scholars Program
In the VI Scholars feedback survey, there were many requests for more technical, hands on training for a variety of research basics. The Academy at Christiana Care has a number of excellent resources for improving your research skills: https://christianacare.org/forhealthprofessionals/education/academy/research-methods/
The Academy also provides resources for Improvement Science: https://christianacare.org/forhealthprofessionals/education/academy/improvement-science/
As a member of the Delaware CTR, we have access to a variety of resources including funding for projects, biostatistics support, mentorship, community engagement support, and more! Go to https://www.de-ctr.org/ to create a profile. I highly recommend joining the Junior Investigators Network, which supports those who are early in their research career in their work. Contact Erin Riegel (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or would like to join.
Coursera.com is another great source: online lectures are available for data visualization, where videos break down how to best display your data in graphs and figures: https://www.coursera.org/lecture/communicating-business-analytics-results/module-introduction-dAhEC
Thank you for all you do for our patients and communities.
