OVERVIEW AND BENEFITS


The career path for trainees in biomedical PhD, MD/PhD, and postdoctoral pursuits can be varied—requiring comprehensive data to make sense of the systems of academic research, teaching administration, science writing, and more. This report examines data collection on these tracks to generate insights into research trainee data collection.

This report profiles seven of 12 AAMC-member institutions selected to participate in a wide-ranging study. The profiles include information about data-collection systems, data use, tracking career outcomes, and data maintenance. The survey and interview data led to five major findings:

  • Data-collection systems are varied.
  • Automation and interoperability are primary technical challenges.
  • Career outcomes data collection for all programs is incomplete.
  • Postdoctoral research data are limited.
  • Databases are used in multiple ways.
