With their faculty mentor, trainees develop an individualized development plan (IDP) that outlines the goals of the postdoctoral training, benchmarks and mechanisms for evaluation, and the expected duration.

Expectations of Trainees

Each trainee participates in a variety of seminars, classes, journal clubs, and meetings associated with the program. In addition to conducting research, trainees are required to attend the following Program activities:

  • Basics of Research Design (PHARM 5020)
  • Training in the responsible conduct of research
  • Addiction Journal Club
  • Chalk Talks
  • Director's Meetings
  • Community Outreach

Notification of Publications and Other Activities

While in the program, all trainees need to provide updates on all of the publications, presentations, awards, and other accomplishments that result from the Training Program. This information should be uploaded to the Trainee Activity Report, or sent to drugabusetraining@uthscsa.edu.
