Research in Implementation Sciences for Equity (RISE)
The UCSF Research in Implementation Science for Equity (RISE) program is part of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institutes Program to Increase Diversity among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE). The goal of the PRIDE program is to enhance the diversity of the biomedical research workforce for junior faculty and transitioning post-doctorates from diverse backgrounds to enable them to become competitive independent scientists. The UCSF RISE program consists of a Summer Institute on both Implementation Science (ImS) and Careers-In-Progress (CIP). The Implementation Science Institute will include didactic training with a focus on developing skills related to: (1) ImS conceptual thinking that orients scholars research on heart and lung disease; (2) Conduct of research to include ImS strategies and study/evaluation designs; (3) Creation of inter-disciplinary implementation teams; (4) Enhancing academic skills like manuscript development, grant preparation, and oral presentations; and (5) Addressing self-efficacy and positive scientific career outcome expectations. Course Objectives: (1) Prioritize research addressing health disparities; (2) Learn how to produce high-quality funding proposals; (3) Build research skills in Implementation Science; (4) Gain access to a larger national network of mentors and mentees through NHLBI and other NIH national initiatives; and (5) Prepare trainees for independent research careers.
