To assess fellows’ progress, the Training Advisory Committee annually reviews and evaluates fellows.
As part of the annual selection process, returning predoctoral fellows annually apply for fellowship positions along with new applicants. The application includes a statement of progress and plans for the additional year of funding. Postdoctoral fellows annually submit progress reports and training plans to the Training Advisory Committee.
The Committee, in collaboration with the mentoring teams, reviews, modifies (as appropriate), and approves the reports and training plans. In addition, the Program’s leadership meets every six months with fellows and mentor teams to assess progress and problems. CCEP leadership also conduct exit interviews with fellows completing the CCEP.
