Mentorship, chiefly from myself but also potentially from members of the interdisciplinary team of researchers assembled to execute the study aims, will be provided on the following:
(1) goal setting: reflecting on the desired and achieved learning associated with the SPUR-funded research activities as well as broader career goals and aspirations. Efforts will be made to expose the student to information and or experiences that can inform decision-making processes (for example, connecting students with an interest in medicine with practicing physicians on the investigator's research team);
(2) time management: learning about and practicing ways to plan when and how work gets done to maximize productivity and personal wellness;
(3) workflow documentation, which will involve keeping a record of all work activities, including steps taken, files created, etc.
