New members are expected to lead a significant new multicenter project within the DFP under mentorship by current or former co-chairs. The intent is to stimulate immediate involvement, build experience, and enable important first-authored contributions to the literature. The Renal DFP prides itself on a collegial, hands-on, active mentoring experience that benefits new members.
New members are expected to have at least some research experience in renal cancer or renal mass imaging or intervention, and to be willing to have significant engagement in leading a multi-center project.
New members receive extensive, hands-on, proactive mentoring by current and former co-chairs in project development and completion over at least a year period as they lead a multi-center effort within the DFP.
