The following are current guidelines, but they are not definitive and will continue to evolve:

  • The expectation is that 40% (roughly two days a week) of the scholar’s time should be allocated (protected) to participate in Winn CDA-related activities. The specific schedule may vary based on individuals’ situations. Time working with the mentor on his/her clinical trial and other mentoring activities will be determined between each mentor and mentee.
  • The schedule may be different for each cohort. For example, there will be an intensive six-day training toward the beginning of the program (year 1 only), there will be an Annual Convening, a series of webinars/learning days, and other activities. Currently, the first cohort meets virtually on a bi-weekly basis (every other Friday).
