Dr. Bolgioni-Smith is Assistant Professor in the Department of Medical Sciences and Education. She is a biomedical PhD trained scientist with expertise in the design, implementation, evaluation, and management of biomedical workforce development programming with PhD graduate students, postdoctoral scholars and faculty. As Associate Director for Evaluation with the NIH-funded Clinical and Translational Science Institute, she uses participatory evaluation approaches to actively engage program directors and staff in the various stages of evaluation to build capacity for good evaluation methods and practices for using the data for continuous improvement. Amanda manages multiple program evaluation plans that advance the aims of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute for:
(1) Biomedical research training for faculty, trainees and staff;
(2) Research support services, resources and tools for investigators that span the research continuum for basic research to translation to humans; and
(3) Novel methods and innovation though incubator initiatives.
Before joining the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, she was Director of Professional and Career Development in Graduate Medical Sciences at the BU Medical School where she implemented the NIH-funded BEST Program across the medical and Charles River campuses. Under her leadership she increased participant engagement with the program two-fold and developed needed infrastructure for effective implementation and outreach. She is active in the Graduate Career Consortium and has recently chaired the Virtual Career Expo in 2019. She presents nationally on collaboration and stakeholder engagement approaches and outcomes. Amanda earned her doctoral degree from the Department of Pharmacology, Boston University.
