Professional Development Research Scholars
The American Academy of Health Behavior (AAHB) provides a 12-month mentoring opportunity to a competitive pool of junior-level health behavior researchers. The purpose of the Research Scholars Mentorship Program (RSMP) is to mentor early career investigators in the production of high-quality scholarly research-based products that address any area of health behavior-related research.
Senior investigators from AAHB (mentors) are partnered with selected junior investigators (mentees) to help them develop skills and gain experience in research-related activities. Selected applicants are matched with senior-level AAHB members based on content or methods expertise. The overarching goal of the RSMP is to promote excellence in health behavior research among Academy members. The research-based products and/or processes resulting from the RSMP are determined by each mentee-mentor pair collaboratively.
