An Internal Advisory Committee assists the Director with administration of the Program. The Program Director and the Internal Advisory Committee comprise the Executive Committee, which is responsible for annual evaluations of trainees and contributes to the annual evaluation of the Program (together with the External Advisory Committee). The Executive Committee also reviews applications to the Program and determine whether current trainees qualify for an additional year of support.
The primary responsibilities of the External Advisory Committee are to provide guidance to the Program Director and to annually evaluate the Program and the trainees. Members are asked to serve on the Committee because of their expertise in mentoring, education, administration, and addiction research.
