Baylor Excellence in Applied Research (BEAR) Program

Warriors Research Institute is proud to offer the Baylor Excellence in Applied Research (BEAR) Program, an internship program that provides Baylor University students practical mental health research experience.

Interns are supervised by Dr. Gulliver and research staff.  Interns are trained in data entry/cleaning, data management, literature reviews, manuscript writing and reviewing, coordinating research materials, screening participants and more.  Interns have the opportunity to author a poster, gain experience using SPSS, gain experience in grantsmanship, be mentored in writing curriculum vitas and personal statements, develop connections in the mental health field and gain recommendations from mentors.
