MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
Welcome to the Office of Research where we are actively engaged in serving RVU’s growing research culture, which is fueled by curiosity, innovation, and our desire to advance medical education and evidence-based practices! The mission of the office of research is to advance, promote and celebrate all research and scholarly activities occurring within the Rocky Vista University community. We are committed to supporting the diversity and inclusion of all participants and of varied perspectives as an essential element to achieve this mission. All areas of research including basic biological, translational, educational, epidemiological, DEI-related, clinical and osteopathic practice studies are supported. The office of research is committed to providing equitable access to guidance, resources, and opportunities for all faculty, staff, and students to engage in various research and scholarly activities that promote the advancement of educational, biomedical and clinical sciences. Equitable support for these areas includes: expert mentorship, statistical consulting, an intramural grant program, travel funds, and other special events to facilitate networking.
Student research and scholarly activity is a vital part of health provider education. It supports and solidifies osteopathic principles and tenets in its interconnectedness to the practice of medicine. Whether you are an aspiring RVU student, a current student, RVU faculty, alumni, or a community advocate I invite you to explore our website and reach out to me with any questions or suggestions.
