The RMMTP provides the training in methodology and conduct of basic and clinical research to qualify trainees to investigate the mechanisms of musculoskeletal disease drug actions in humans. Trainees conduct research projects under the supervision of primary mentors and also have a co-mentor in a complimentary field. This structure encourages trans-disciplinary research training. Progress is evaluated periodically by mentoring committees consisting of a lead mentor, the co-mentor and one or more research preceptors who are not directly involved in the trainee's project.
Emphasis is placed on conducting research in special populations, including women, children, geriatric persons, and members of ethnic minority groups. We encourage the recruitment, retention, and training of scholars who are members of underrepresented groups and diverse specialties and with disabilities.
