The CDW for Research supports research among Boston University medical students, residents, and fellows from all departments. The CDW for Research requires mentors to be engaged in the trainee's data request process. Mentors should plan to attend the initial data request consultation with the trainee.
BU students from the School of Medicine, School of Public Health, and School of Dental Medicine are required to have a faculty-level mentor who oversees the data request process and is ultimately responsible for the data request.
