Date(s): July 22-August 2
Location: San Francisco, CA

The University of California, San Francisco Research in Implementation Science for Equity (RISE) program is part of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s Program to Increase Diversity among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (NHLBI-PRIDE). RISE is an all-expenses paid opportunity designed to train competitive scientists and enhance the diversity of the biomedical research workforce. The program involves a two-week RISE Summer Institute, which is hosted by UCSF’s Center for Vulnerable Populations from July 22 – August 2, 2019 in San Francisco (a second summer institute will be held the following summer as well).

The UCSF RISE program consists of a Summer Institute on both Implementation Science (ImS) and Careers-In-Progress (CIP). RISE scholars will be offered the opportunity to apply for Small Research Project (SRP) funding during RISE. The Implementation Science Institute will include didactic training with a focus on developing skills related to:

  • ImS conceptual thinking that orients scholars’ research on heart and lung disease
  • Conduct of research to include ImS strategies and study/evaluation designs
  • Creation of inter-disciplinary implementation teams
  • Enhancing academic skills like manuscript development, grant preparation, and oral presentations
  • Addressing self-efficacy and positive scientific career outcome expectations
