The Program was funded by The Center on Health Outcomes Research and Capacity Building for Underserved Population and Rehabilitation Research and Training Center.
This project has several types of high quality training activities specifically targeted towards graduate, pre-service, and in-service training mechanisms, including those specifically available to people with SCI and their families. The length and intensity of the training activities are matched to the characteristics of the trainees. The program educate individuals at different levels of their careers, utilizes our research findings as the foundation for training, and perform the training in diverse settings including those that are consumer and community-based.
Goals of training:
- Provide health and rehabilitation science pre-doctoral students the mentorship and training necessary to become the future generation of researchers in the field of secondary conditions after SCI. MORE DETAILS
- Provide undergraduate students exposure to rehabilitation research with the ultimate goal of encouraging them to pursue this area of research as a career. MORE DETAILS
- Train future medical professionals in the principles of SCI rehabilitation research, specifically focused on secondary conditions. MORE DETAILS
- Provide continuing education for medical professionals to ensure they are provided the most up-to-date information on secondary conditions after SCI. MORE DETAILS
- Train rehabilitation service providers in issues related to secondary conditions after SCI to ensure best practices are provided. MORE DETAILS
