After identifying key elements at each stage of the biomedical research career trajectory that lead to the development of a successful biomedical research career and, ultimately, success as an NIH-funded investigator, the Diversity Program Consortium (DPC) developed “Hallmarks of Success.” These hallmarks guide the Consortium-wide evaluation and span the individual student, faculty/mentor, and institutional levels, matching the three levels of DPC program impact. At the discretion of the DPC Executive Steering Committee, these hallmarks may be altered or revised over time. The hallmarks listed here will be used for the Consortium-wide evaluation during the second phase of the DPC.
The hallmarks assume that there is baseline data on program participants and a similar group not in the program (comparator group). Progress toward hallmarks means that those in the program do better over time than those in the comparator group. The hallmarks are “goals” to achieve or move toward over the course of the program. If the hallmark is already at a high level, then the goal should be maintenance.
In all hallmarks, the term "Biomedical" is defined as "Behavioral and biomedical health-related."
