LDI Research Seminar with Christine Veenstra, MD, MSHP
In connection with the University of Michigan and the University of California, San Francisco, the Emerging Scholars Exchange Program is designed to provide career development opportunities for early career faculty via invited presentations at prestigious peer universities. Through the Exchange Program, early career faculty will have the opportunity to develop relationships with potential research collaborators, mentors, and sponsors; hone their oral presentation skills; and bolster their CVs as they prepare for promotion.
