Michael was a great instructor. He was very enthusiastic and lead the workshop with ease. By the end of the session, I felt very comfortable locating veins, using a needle and performing a blood draw — skills that were previously illusive.

Hi Dr. Miller, Thank you again SO MUCH for the wonderful consultation last week- it really “tightened” up my training plan and gave me a clearer perspective on how to write to make reading easier for the reviewers.

Dear Karen, I wanted to share with you the good news – my K23 is being funded! The Conquering the K course was excellent and the consults I did with you were incredibly helpful. The reviewers’ comments continually said how responsive to feedback I was and I owe much of that to your guidance and feedback of how to be responsive. Thank you so much for all of your support!

Just wanted to share some great news- I was awarded a CMeRIT this week!! You were actually the one who taught me about that mechanism during one of your K workshops in Dec 2021 and had encouraged me to apply. I’m still moving forward with the K08 submission in October that you have been so helpful with during our consult sessions, but boy, this is such a relief!

Teresa has made the an idea become reality! She has gone beyond our expectations! We thought we would make a powerpoint module but Teresa took our ideas to new heights! Now our project is interactive and full of life and personality which will keep participants engaged in the learning! One of many examples of her passion for the material is she looked up academic journals discussing what makes an effective online learning modules within nursing! She has thought about each critical detail in the design which has made this an outstanding module and we cannot wait to share it! Thank you Teresa for you hard-work, commitment, organization, and innovative ideas!

Teresa made a project that seemed almost impossible come to life with such ease and it will be such a valuable resource for future clinical research nurses.

They have guided me through every step of the process, patiently answered my multiple questions and provided helpful examples. The broad array of advanced technologies available for course design makes it possible to create rich and sophisticated educational offerings.

I enjoyed using the platform [BigBlueButton]. I found it the easiest and most intuitive of the several different platforms I have used.

We had a wonderful experience working with Jamie and the DCR team over the past year. Since it was our first time launching this type of live online curriculum, we were not clear on how to get started and what details we needed to be aware of. Jamie provided step-by-step instruction and met with us as needed to support us along the way. Some elements included building the course page, drafting course advertisements, best practice presentation methodology and tips, and technical assistance. Jamie even gave us constructive criticism on the presentation in advance and after our session, further improving the class dynamics, and Jamie provided detailed edits on our first course’s resource document. The DCR team demonstrated professionalism and in-depth knowledge of their work and helped us with three very successful live online classes, launched over the last few months. We are confident that the DCR team members will continue their outstanding work on nurturing the MGB research community in the future.

Dear Andy,
Just wanted to send a belated thank you for taking the time go over career development awards in detail last week. Making the transition to writing grants is a whole new ball game, and it’s great to be in a network where world-class coaches are willing to take the time to provide guidance and wisdom.
I hope to cross paths again.
