Mentoring
Available: 11/13/19, Expires: 06/01/22

The objective of this project is to analyze patient outcomes with regard to surgical management, perioperative care, oncologic outcomes, etc.

Student can pose questions that they can pursue or join currently running studies. The role is to review database information, develop hypothesis, perform database searches and verify accuracy, perform statistical analysis and critical evaluation of data, perform literature reviews and write analysis.  May also be involved in interacting with patients and support staff including PA and residents in patient management and data collecting. There is also opportunity to be in the OR for operative experience.

The student should expect to crtically review data, learn basic data analysis, attend lab meetings, and write at least one paper as first or second author. This should take about 5 hours/week on average. 

Experience in data analysis and statistics is helpful but not necessary. Enthusiasm important. The project mentor is available to meet weekly or more as needed.


Bibliographic
Publications listed below are automatically derived from MEDLINE/PubMed and other sources, which might result in incorrect or missing publications. Faculty can login to make corrections and additions.
Newest   |   Oldest   |   Most Cited   |   Most Discussed   |   Timeline   |   Field Summary   |   Plain Text
PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
