The goal of our TRIO program is to improve care and outcomes for patients with KUH diseases. TRIO combines strong institutional support for learning and discovery with well-funded and committed KUH investigators and mentors that will accelerate scholarly learning, networking, and professional development as strategies to scale high-impact practices, support guided pathways, and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. Trainees are at the heart of this program, and TRIO will provide a seamless experience for trainees across institutions, developing the KUH researchers of tomorrow. This will be accomplished harmoniously with the 3 cores that make up this program: Training Core, Networking Core, and Professional Development Core.
