CPDR Education and Training

Academic Enrichment

 

Academic Enrichment of CPDR Trainees Through CPDR's Laboratory Meetings, Seminars and Visiting Speakers

The goal of various meetings scheduled on a weekly or monthly basis is::

  1. To enhance the quality of research
  2. To enhance interaction among CPDR researchers and trainees
  3. To follow the progress of trainees in specific research projects
  4. To learn from the experience of colleagues from other institutions
  5. To be current on the most recent discoveries in CaP and other areas of cancer research.

The CPDR supports the visits of distinguished basic science researchers in the field of prostate cancer for two of the four "CPDR Saturday" lectures on a yearly basis (special seminars). Urology residents receive CME credits for their participation in the Saturday meetings. CPDR trainees actively participate in local events such as lectures and workshops at NIH, USUHS and other research institutions in the area. Training of CPDR employees at local educational institutions is strongly encouraged in the areas that will increase their productivity at work.
