The vision of RISE is to significantly contribute to improving both national and global health outcomes by guiding our students’ growth as scholars. To realize this vision, the goal of RISE is to create the guiding environment that fosters the spirit of scientific inquiry across USF Health such that the students develop a lifelong scholarly approach to the practice of medicine. RISE acknowledges and is indebted to the commitment and support of the USF Health and affiliate faculty who are crucial to the success of our students and the mission of Morsani College of Medicine.
Specifically, the office of RISE acts as a centralized resource to promote and support students and their faculty mentors engaged in research, scholarship, innovation and creative endeavors. The office guides and supports students and faculty in the Scholarly Concentrations Program, the SELECT program and individual medical students by providing:
Scholarly activities including research, business endeavors, innovation, technology, and creative Arts and Humanities need to be documented via the Archivum platform once the student is enrolled.
The Bulls on the RISE poster wall in the Office of Educational Affairs within the Department of Medical Education showcases student/mentor outcomes in poster format on a rotating quarterly schedule.
