Sign up for GRRSP Jan 2024 Batches
“Joining GRRSP is more than just a research program; it is a full-life time experience. Not only do you learn about various research disciplines but also gain important skill sets which one can utilize for the rest of his life. I got opportunities to work on all different kinds of projects. From editorials to Meta-Analysis to original articles, worked on five different systematic reviews and meta-analysis, a cross-sectional survey studies some editorials and a narrative review. Many of the group members presented our projects at numerous international conferences including ACC, ACG, WCN, SCCM. What I absolutely love about this whole six-month program is that I got to connect and work with some brilliant Researchers/Residents/Fellows/Attendings throughout the world, learning and growing together as a team! I would say this program is great for anyone from med students to residents to attending, from an absolute beginner to advance level researchers.”
“It was by chance that I came across GRRSP and it has been a wonderful thing that has happened to me. I wanted to learn and be involved in research for a long time but didn't know how to start or whom to approach; Dr. Kashyap taught us how to conduct a research project in a systematic and step-by-step manner and now I am confident in conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis. Though I started with the intention of adding research experience to my CV, meeting Dr. Kashyap every week and learning about research from him made me develop a genuine interest in research. The collegial, supportive, and motivating environment of the group and the opportunity to work with people from all around the world has been an enriching experience for me. Dr. Kashyap is an amazing mentor, he would gently push us, motivate us, and never allow us to slack off. The best part is that the entire process has been very hands-on, right from coming up with our ideas for the projects to submitting the abstracts to conferences, this gave us a lot of confidence and Dr. Kashyap made the entire process incredibly smooth. I was asked about my research in almost all my residency interviews and because I was genuinely involved in all the projects, I was able to answer the questions confidently. Thank you very much, Dr. Kashyap and GRRSP, I am highly indebted to you.”
"I am a medical resident and started GRRSP to increase my research experience and apply for a fellowship. GRRSP gave me all the support needed and much more for my academic progress. I matched into a gastroenterology fellowship and have published more than 5 manuscripts and 10 abstracts with many more that are ongoing. It was one of my best decisions for the year 2022. Through this program, you will learn the power of collaboration. You will learn research methods and research writing. You will be guided until the final step of publication. I 100% recommend this program for anyone looking to improve their CV, particularly for U.S. residency programs."
"It was such a privilege joining GRRSP; a program that would simply guide you and make you many steps closer to your goal. It’s a program in which you will not only learn about research fundamentals, but also you will have the opportunity to change this knowledge into actual clinical research work, and gain research skills that could be of great help throughout your medical career. I had the opportunity to participate in many projects. We submitted abstracts to international conferences, and wrote full manuscripts to submit to prestigious medical journals. Dr. Kashyap who is a wonderful person and mentor, guided us through each step in detail. We had a weekly meeting with him at which we discussed our progress in a supportive and motivating environment. He encouraged us to achieve our goals and never let us step back. For me, the most interesting part was having the opportunity to collaborate and communicate with other colleagues and friends from different countries and cultures that definitely gives me confidence and enhance my communication and teamwork skills. That’s why I would recommend this program to all my colleagues in the medical field without reservation."
"If you are a motivated medical student or graduate interested in gaining exposure to clinical research, I would highly recommend this program. I really can't say enough about GRRSP- it was really God's provision that I stumbled upon Dr. Kashyap's LinkedIn post for GRRSP applications. My experience with our batch 3 has been phenomenal and really beyond expectations. I was able to connect with like-minded, driven and intelligent scholars who were willing to collaborate with the limited resources we had. Not only that, Dr. Kashyap's mentorship is really what made it so special. His passion and expertise drove me and my team to work efficiently with accuracy. After having a chance to meet him in person, I realized all the more how much he really cared for his mentee to learn and grow in every opportunity. This program is a real gem and it will really open the doors for you if you are motivated!"
"I have interacted with Dr Kashyap over 3 years. He was my mentor and go to guide for clinical research. He was always approachable and provided very good guidance, drawing from his extensive experience and insight relating to research. Under his guidance and support, I became an investigator of an international registry presenting our work at national and international scientific meetings and published in many well reputed medical journals . I had the opportunity to do peer reviews which helped me understand the nuances of publishing in good journals. Our work was cited across the globe in more than 100 news channels including the New York times. Our work also won an abstract award at a national level conference. Overall mentoring from Dr Kashyap has enriched my professional and academic life and the research collaboration has been highly productive. I am certain that his new venture will help many more hard working talented and deserving people achieve their goals and objectives. My best wishes."
"Coming from a background of no research experience, I always had an apprehension to reach out for projects. Becoming a part of GRRSP, gave me an opportunity to learn from the very basics. A very unique strength of this program is that it will provide you with multiple ideas, projects and learning opportunities in the field of research while maintaining a personal touch of mentoring. Starting from zero to presenting case reports in international conferences like IDSA, SCCM, ACC and becoming a co-lead in a systematic review was a wonderful learning curve for me. I formed various connections throughout the world through this program and this is a very crucial phenomenon for an International Medical Graduate applying for residency in the US. During my interviews, this research experience was a great interactive element on various occasions. I believe incoming students will benefit a lot from the interdisciplinary training in the program, just as I did."
"GRRSP is an excellent avenue for any individual who want to hone their research skills or even get inducted into the world of research. It is an opportunity to network and learn from people in different stages of their careers with different areas of interest. It enables all participants to think outside the box and focus their efforts based on their personal goals with the help of highly invested mentors."
"Before joining GRRSP I had zero research experience. I was introduced to research by Dr. Rahul Kashyap, and with him and the GRRSP team I learnt everything about research. GRRSP does not only provide you a pathway to publish valuable research, it trains you to become a self-sufficient researcher. From being part of a research group to building strong long-term relationships and collaborations. Your GRRSP batch is much more than a team, you learn as you do and the scope of your growth is unimaginable, from learning how to write to finding your own topics of interests to performing analysis and publishing manuscripts, GRRSP is based on a "learning by doing" concept. With the help of this amazing team I was not only able to present multiple abstracts in national and international conferences such as ACC, SCCM, ACG, etc, but also lead the largest global study on violence against healthcare workers (ViSHWaS cross-sectional study) as it's principal investigator. With GRRSP sky's the limit and the best part is it's for everyone! You can be a nurse, you could be a medical student, a resident, an attending physician or any healthcare profession! I have really enjoyed my time wunder Dr. Kashyap's guidance and I believe anyone who joins the team will do the same!"
"As a medical student, I had very limited exposure to research until I came upon Dr. Kashyap’s YouTube channel. Then I reached out to him, and he enrolled me in his GRRSP Batch#2. It was a truly enlightening experience learning the basics and collaborating on various projects. It gave me the opportunity to present multiple research abstracts at SCCM Critical Care Congress, an international conference in 2023 as well as be part of award-winning research projects selected in various conferences like ACG, AGA etc. The essentials skills, starting right from how to formulate a research hypothesis to writing the final manuscript and submitting in a journal, I learnt all of it from my time in GRRSP. I was able to form connections with researchers across the globe through GRRSP and have formed long-lasting bonds. The mentorship included not research skills but also life advice on how to navigate the tumultuous journey of executing a research idea to fruition and life in general. I am truly grateful to GRRSP for the experience that has solidified my foundation for a future career in research as an aspiring physician-scientist. I recommend this program to all who are interested in research and want to be ahead of the curve!"
"I express my utmost appreciation and gratitude for Dr. Kashyap for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this GRRSP program. I was able to gain invaluable experience and knowledge that will undoubtedly benefit in my future academic endeavours. The program offered exceptional well-organised understanding of the basics of research. I successfully designed a research proposal to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis, Dr. Kashyap offered a comprehensive curriculum that covered all aspects of completing my project. He provided me with insightful feedback and guidance throughout the program. I really appreciate the emphasis placed on hands-on experience, as it allowed me to apply the concepts and work on my mistakes, thereby, learning and growing at the same time. The regular meetings with the mentor and co-fellows gave a chance to express, improve and make new friends and relationships with students and doctors round the world. The program's impact on my ERAS application and personal growth cannot be overstated. The program equipped me with the necessary skills to conduct independent research. I thank Dr. Kashyap and his team for their hard-work , dedication and commitment to providing a top-notch research training program. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of research methodology and gain experience in conducting their own dream research project/s"
