What is RISE?

Research in Implementation Science for Equity (RISE) is an all-expenses-paid training opportunity for junior faculty who are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. RISE is designed to train competitive scientists and enhance the diversity of the biomedical research workforce. The program involves a two-week RISE Summer Institute, focused on implementation science and career mentoring, which is hosted by UCSF’s Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics in partnership with the Center for Vulnerable Populations in July in San Francisco. RISE Scholars also complete a second institute the following summer.

RISE is a part of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s Program to Increase Diversity among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (NHLBI-PRIDE).

Why join the RISE cohort? 

  • Learn methodological training on Implementation Science
  • Career mentoring
  • Grantsmanship training
  • Professional networking opportunity
  • Opportunity to apply for pilot funds

Our current cohort of RISE fellows shared some of their experiences in the program. See what they had to say…

“The real beauty of implementation science is that the research and the work actually involve patients in the process of generating the questions and the discussion and the focus of the research. For me, that completely resonates with why I went into medicine.”
