slide2

The RSP info is posted on MedWeb. Follow the links from Curriculum Years I/II to the RSP info.

Select a project that really appeals to you. Your choices are extremely flexible.

Satisfactory completion of the RSP is a requirement for promotion to Year 3. You will submit a form nolater than 9/25/09 to the Curriculum Office describing your RSP, plus a mid-year form (1/29/10) , plus a final form & paper (5/14/10).

Your RSP paper is evaluated by your PPM mentors & possibly others. The final paper should describe more than just the nuts & bolts of the project, i.e., it should describe how the project impacted your professional development.

Have a back-up plan for an alternative project.

Understand the pitfalls that you may encounter working with a very busy clinician, i.e., have a back-up plan!!

slide3

Does your RSP have to be related to your area of Emphasis within the Pathway Advisory Program?

No, but in most cases we recommend it as being a good idea.

What are some of the problems commonly

encountered by students working with clinicians?

Reliable access to the clinician.

Find out if there is anyone else to contact if you cannot contact the clinician? This applies equally to researchers who are very busy.

slide4

Good things to keep in mind as you pursue your RSP:

Ask about availability of your sponsor. If the sponsor is not always available, is there anyone else you can meet with or work with?

Make it clear what your time availability will be.

It is legitimate to inquire if your work on the project might result in your being a co-author or author on a publication.

Do you feel comfortable with your sponsor or his/her lab group or clinical group?

Do your best to clearly define your role & responsibilities on the project. Make this clear in your RSP form that you will submit to Curriculum.

If you back out of the project, carefully consider how you do this, i.e., be a professional.

7. Do not let a lot of time go by if you are not making acceptable progress on your project.
