In February of each year, the program has a one-day retreat for scholars and their mentors. It is usually held away from the Baylor campus. The purpose of the retreat is to allow students the opportunity to present their research to outside reviewers, and for us to receive critical feedback about the program. We invite three successful investigators from around the country to come to Houston to learn about our programs and hear presentations from our scholars. The day is educational and rewarding for all participants, and is a requirement for all scholars in the program, together with their mentors.
This academic year the retreat will be on Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014.
