Call for Participation in New Working Group: Early-Stage Researchers

(Faaizah Arshad) #1

Hi everyone,

I am collaborating with a few student researchers to lead a new working group called the ‘Early-Stage Researchers Working Group’. The objectives are:

  • to build a casual environment for younger community members to meet with each other and work together without feeling intimidated by their seniors

  • to create leadership experiences for junior researchers

  • to invite individuals to discuss and present research

  • to enable junior researchers to take part in OHDSI projects

The purpose of this post is to gauge for interest and to decide on a regular schedule. So, if you are interested, please let us know in the comments below- all junior researchers are welcome!!

As of now, we plan to have meetings monthly. Please answer this anonymous poll to indicate your availability.

We recognize that there won’t be a perfect time for everybody, but we hope to accommodate for as many people’s schedule as possible.

Please feel free to contact me at faaizaha23@g.ucla.edu for further questions.

Excited to collaborate!
