"I cannot say enough great things about this course. ...I can only imagine the long-term impact that this course will have on my academic endeavors!"
"The course was an exxcellent experience! It really helped solidify key concepts in research methodology and gave us invaluable tips for our academic careers."
"The Exxcellence course was career changing for me. I feel like I truly understand how to design and execute a research study. Since leaving, I have edited two papers for re-submission and applied for two grants. I gave a new sense of confidence ...that will allow me to be a more effective agent for my institution."
"I just wanted to thank you and the Foundation for the opportunity. It's incredible how much I learned in 6 days. My only regret is that I can't do it every year."
"The course was outstanding. It offered a solid refresher in basic principles of clinical research as well as a strong dose of enthusiasm and motivation at a critical juncture in the careers of many of us early-to-mid career academicians. I recommend it highly!"
"The six days of study were truly inspirational. It is always nice to be reminded of the profound effect that evidence and strong science can have on the health of women."
