Peer Mentorship Program

For Graduates of Young Scholars Biostatistics and Medical Research Summer Program

This program offers students who have successfully completed Young Scholars the opportunity to:

  • Stay connected with the program
  • Acquire leadership skills
  • Further develop biostatistical and programming skills
  • Learn more about study design and methods.

Specific peer mentor responsibilities include:

  • Co-lead a pre-program “Meet and Greet” session
  • Serve as team leader for a group of 4-5 Young Scholars
  • Serve as a teaching assistant for biostatistics and programming labs
  • Assist the Young Scholars with their research projects
  • Administer pre- and post-program surveys to Young Scholars participants; data enter, summarize, and interpret the results of those surveys.

This is a 5-week commitment. It begins two weeks before the start of the two-week Young Scholars program and continues for at least one week after the program concludes.

In addition to program-related responsibilities, peer mentors will be able to work on a research project, shadow our biostatisticians, and sit in on Yale Center for Analytical Sciences research and design clinics, analytic clinics, and consultation sessions.
