The Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health, the nation's largest hospital devoted to clinical research, provides training opportunities through the Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA). Our collective experience as IRTA interns is captured in three interrelated connectors: confidence, learning opportunities, and mentoring. Building confidence occurs by successfully completing unfamiliar tasks and developing projects to completion. Learning opportunities encompass both clinical practice and research. Effective mentoring extends beyond giving career guidance demonstrated by our mentor's commitment and positive approach to our overall well-being to leading us through new and challenging situations. In summary, all three processes are connectors that have been instrumental in our accomplishments. Knowing, applying, and embracing all available opportunities are essential steps for emerging leaders to shape health care.

El Centro Clínico de los Institutos Nacionales de la Salud (NIH, por sus siglas en inglés), el hospital más grande del país dedicado a la investigación biomédica, ofrece oportunidades a través del Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA)—una pasantía de trabajo con investigadores científicos en un ambiente rigoroso de investigación. Nuestra experiencia colectiva como participantes de IRTA es capturada en tres conectadores interrelacionados: confianza, oportunidades de aprendizaje y mentoría. La creación de confianza es el logro de completar exitosamente las tareas asignadas y desarrollar presentaciones profesionales. Oportunidades de aprendizaje conlleva tanto la práctica clínica como investigaciones nuevas. Mentoría efectiva va más allá de dar consejos laborales que fuese demostrado por nuestra mentora del compromiso total con nuestro bienestar a dirigirnos a través de nuevas situaciones y retos. En resumen, los tres procesos son conectadores que han sido vitales para nuestros logros. Reconocer, completar y estar dispuesto a asumir nuevas oportunidades son pasos esenciales para el desarrollo de líderes que transformen el sistema de salud.
