Summer Institute

The Summer Institute is aimed at graduate students, post-doctoral and clinical fellows, and junior faculty who study issues relevant to KT and those who want to learn more about how to advance their research skills in this area.

The Summer Institute uses a mix of small and large group sessions and will focus on active learning strategies. Mentorship opportunities will be available through formal and informal meet the professor sessions as well as peer to peer networking. We will also have a poster session and you will be expected to present your poster.
