"I am convinced that mentorship is critical to the success of young investigators.  Through the ICRE I gained valuable mentorship and then was given an opportunity to become a mentor myself.  In addition, the perspective on clinical research has enabled me to envision a medical technology all the way from the bench side to the bedside, which is quite uncommon in my field."
