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.
