 Permanent link   All Posts

New York University is accepting applications for the Substance Abuse Research Education and Training (SARET) Visiting Mentor Development Program. SARET, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), trains future physicians, nurses, dentists, social workers and public health professionals in substance use disorder (SUD) research. The Visiting Mentor Development Program offers the opportunity to spend a week in New York City training to become a SARET champion for your institution. Visiting mentors will receive ongoing technical assistance and guidance, tailored to their institutional context, to help them develop SUD research training programs at their schools/institutions. 

An interdisciplinary initiative, SARET uses a modular web-based curriculum and mentored research placements to activate the interest of students in schools of medicine, nursing, dentistry, social work and public health (including at the doctoral and Master’s levels) in SUD-related research careers. Participating in SARET’s mentored research experience has an enduring impact on trainees’ interest in SUD research. To develop this capacity at your institution, enroll in SARET’s Visiting Mentor Development Program.
