BRIDGE (Biomedical Research career IDentification in Graduate Education):
building a diverse biomedical and behavioral research workforce
BRIDGE is a four-year intervention study predicting persistence in challenging academic environments. Interventions designed to encourage doctoral students - especially under-represented minority students (URM) - to pursue their career aspirations in the research sciences will be developed, implemented and tested at UCSF. We hope to obtain information that will lead to evidence-based programs that effectively support greater diversity in the student body and in the health science research career workforce.
