The Advocate Research Director’s Network

  • The Advocate Research Director’s Network is a system wide and site based network.
  • This network acts as a conduit for communication and shared resources within and between Advocate Investigators. 
  • The Advocate Research Director’s Network has developed into a network which is inclusive of numerous invested Advocate Investigators, including residency programs, fellowship programs, nursing, pharmacy, and performance improvement. 
  • Through this network communication it serves to facilitate scholarly activity within and between sites and departments and serves as a resource for mentors and trainees alike.
  • In addition to the above, The Advocate Research Director’s Network also works to host the annual Advocate Research and Innovation Forum.

Julie Shaffner Research Fellowship Workshop for Nursing
