Peer Mentorship Program

For Graduates of Young Scholars Biostatistics and Medical Research Summer Program

This program offers students who have successfully completed Young Scholars the opportunity to: 

  • Stay connected with the program 
  • Acquire leadership skills 
  • Further develop biostatistical and programming skills 
  • Learn more about study design and methods. 

Specific peer mentor responsibilities include: 

  • Co-lead a pre-program “Meet and Greet” session 
  • Serve as team leader for a group of 4-5 Young Scholars 
  • Serve as a teaching assistant for biostatistics and programming labs 
  • Assist the Young Scholars with their research projects 
  • Administer pre- and post-program surveys to Young Scholars and their parents; and data enter, summarize, and interpret the results of those surveys. 

This is a month-long commitment. It begins one week before the start of the two-week Young Scholars program and continues for at least one week after the program concludes. 

In addition to program-related responsibilities, peer mentors will be able to shadow our biostatisticians, and sit in on research and design clinics, analytic clinics, and consultation sessions.
