How Can I Become An Investigator At DHRI?
Dignity Health requires that principal investigators for biomedical, data and other research endeavors are either active members of a Dignity Health medical staff or a Dignity Health employee qualified to act in such a role. Medical residents at Dignity Health teaching facilities may act as principal investigators provided they have an appropriate physician mentor who is also an active member of the medical staff at the Dignity Health teaching facility. Health sciences students may act as principal investigators provided they are a current Dignity Health employee and have an appropriate Dignity Health department director and/or Dignity Health physician mentor overseeing their research project.
