How We Support Students
Training and capacity development is a core service of NL SUPPORT. Only through the provision of training can the shift in culture to patient-oriented research be achieved. Students are key to this culture change which is why NL SUPPORT provides a limited number of bi-annual funding stipends for graduate students and summer employment opportunities for undergraduate students at Memorial who wish to be involved in or lead patient-oriented research. More information regarding these funding opportunities can be found at the link below.
In addition to the funding opportunities offered, all students are welcome to attend NL SUPPORT’s training events and webinars and are encouraged to contact members of the NL SUPPORT team if they wish to discuss potential research or evaluation ideas.
