Investigators and Clinicians
The Mayo Clinic Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCaTS) provides resources and services to assist investigators and clinicians in productively engaging in and with the community. Much of this activity is coordinated through the Office for Community Engagement in Research (OCER).
Resources and services
Consultative services to increase community engagement in clinical and translational science are provided by OCER. These services include:
- Providing education and training on the principles of community engagement in research
- Providing consultation on all phases of the research process to help investigators become more engaged with the community
- Collaborating with the Office of Health Disparities Research (OHDR), the Office for Health Equity and Inclusion (OHEI), and the CCaTS Research Volunteer Program on issues related to participant recruitment
