MDRTC Administration Core
The MDRTC Administration Core formulates goals and objectives through internal committees and interactions with external experts and organizations including:
- American Association of Diabetes Educators
- American Diabetes Association
- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
- National Diabetes Education Program.
- National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
- World Health Organization
The Administration Core also provides financial management, personnel management, and facilities and equipment management for all cores within the MDRTC.
Financial management includes budget preparation, financial reporting, account management, purchasing and fee-for-service reimbursement according to the policies and guidelines of the University and the National Institutes of Health. The Administration Core also seeks and secures financial support for the center. Specifically, it develops proposals for funding of diabetes research, collaborates with other departments or units to jointly acquire and share resources, and encourages donations to the MDRTC.
Personnel management includes recruitment, hiring, salary and benefits program administration, staff supervision and evaluation.
Facilities and equipment management includes providing oversight of space and equipment utilization, new space construction, renovation, and equipment service and maintenance.
The Administration Core is also responsible for communication and information exchange between center members, the University and the larger diabetes community. In this role, the Administration Core creates and distributes the center newsletter and other information of value to center members via e-mail or the Web site. The Administration Core also maintains and updates the MDRTC Web site. Information on the Web site describes key personnel, core facilities, the membership application process, training and enrichment programs, and the Pilot and Feasibility Grants Program. MDRTC-developed survey instruments, clinical research tools and patient brochures are available for downloading, and links to other patient and professional sites also are provided.
The Administration Core also:
- oversees the MDRTC Pilot/Feasibility Study Grants Program
- provides training opportunities that raise awareness and knowledge about diabetes
- coordinates workshops, lectureships, visiting professorships and symposia
- hosts visiting faculty
