Zaback, Tosha; Becker, Thomas M.; Dignan, Mark B.; Lambert, William E.
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v34 n3 p93-106 2010
In this article, the authors describe a unique summer program to train American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) health professionals in a variety of health research-related skills, including epidemiology, data management, statistical analysis, program evaluation, cost-benefit analysis, community-based participatory research, grant writing, and program/policy development. The Summer Research Training Institute for American Indian/Alaska Native Health Professionals is modeled on the authors' successful Native Researchers' Cancer Control Training Program, established in 1995. Their goal is to provide training in the conduct of scientific research to health professionals in order to increase research capacities and the number of qualified AI/AN principal investigators in Indian country. Here, the authors provide a brief description of their training program and an evaluation of its process and outcomes. (Contains 7 tables and 13 notes.)
