Biostatistical Education to Increase Research Innovation and Diversity in Academic Medicine

Track: Health Equity and Community Engagement

Session Number: 1016
Date: Thu, Apr 20th, 2017
Time: 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

Description:

Increasing recruitment, retention, promotion, and research innovation of diverse leaders in the clinical investigator workforce, inclusive of both clinicians and non-clinicians, requires comprehensive, multilevel solutions. One mechanism by which academic medical institutions can better ensure the success of underrepresented minorities (URMs) is by providing them with unique opportunities to simultaneously increase their statistical competency and research capacity. In this panel discussion, two leaders in the field of biostatistics, who have extensive experience in the development and implementation of methodological training programs targeted to URMs at various stages in their careers, Dr. Melissa D. Begg (Vice Provost for Academic Programs, Columbia University) and Dr. Emilia Bagiella (Director of the Center for Biostatistics, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai) will share their experiences with regards to the development, implementation, and evaluation of such programs. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Emma K. T. Benn (Director of Academic Programs for the Center for Biostatistics, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai).
