Year 1: Scholars will focus on research immersion at JHU and pedagogical training at JHU, MSU and CSU.

Year 2: Scholars will have made significant progress on their project and completed mentored teaching modules.

Year 3: Scholars will begin the transition to research independence and will develop course modules or teach courses independently. By the end of their three-year training period, scholars will have advanced their academic careers in research and education, motivated new diverse populations of students towards biomedical careers, and promoted teaching and research interactions between the partnering institutions.

An optional fourth year will provide additional opportunities for transition to independence as well as additional teaching experience.
