Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)?
Critical Challenge (CC)
Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC
Instructions to Mentors for K Awards and Sponsors for F awards for reporting on the progress of their trainees in RPPR non-competitive renewal applications are very general. Developing more specific criteria and rankings should better predict future stars. Having more explicit training criteria throughout the life of a program could improve the overall quality of the mentoring and the training within the program.
Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC
Five to ten years is sufficient time to track a representative sample of programs to develop criteria to be tested.
