The PROMISE Study: Peer group Research On Mentoring Scientists underrepresented in biomedical research, is a randomized controlled study comparing two peer group mentoring approaches for their positive impact on both personal gains (e.g., sense of belonging, research self-efficacy, etc.) and longer-term career outcomes (e.g., publications, grants submitted and funded, promotion etc.). (DUHS IRB #Pro00103457).

Peer mentoring has been shown to support academic success. Now more than ever, peer group support is important.
