Scientific Management Training

The Scientific Management Training (SMT) course focuses on personnel and project management.  While outstanding scientific research is conducted at NCI, many of the scientists who go on to lead their own laboratories have few managerial skills.  In the art of supervision section of this course, participants learn that each person is unique and should be treated properly to achieve desired outcomes.  In the organization section, participants learn how the development of successful teams with delegated authority is needed to complete an organizational mission.  The goal of the SMT course is to develop the skills needed to successfully lead a scientific research laboratory.  The participation of NIH Principal Investigators and Fellows, who need to develop scientific management skills is encouraged.
