The Tulane BIRCWH provides a comprehensive, mentored research training program in Women’s Health for four Scholars each year. The program is designed to bridge the gap between advanced training and research independence, as well as bridge professions, scientific disciplines and areas of interests for BIRCWH scholars. Successful candidates will be supported for a two year program, requiring 75% protected research time, and providing financial support for salary and didactic training.
Each Scholar’s career development plan will be individualized depending on their research interests, earlier training, education and goals. All Scholars will formulate and execute an interdisciplinary research plan addressing cardiovascular disease (CVD) relevant to sex, gender and women’s health. Scholars will be expected to write peer-reviewed publications, present at scientific meetings, and submit proposals for funding of scholar-initiated research.
A team of mentors skilled in research will provide trainees with the fundamental training and the inter-professional, intellectual and technical research base necessary to produce women’s health researchers of a high caliber. These mentors can provide access to established research programs with a broad range of basic and applied biomedical and behavioral science and health services research across the schools within the Tulane University Health Sciences Center.
