Career Development Award Logic Model Template

Several years ago, HRA members collaborated with a consultant to create this Logic Model Template for developing and evaluating a program targeted toward Early Career Investigators. Included as a part of this logic model are suggestions for measures of both mid and long-term outcomes as well as impact.

The logic model is both a framework and a way of thinking that helps us develop results-based programs. A logic model is a valuable tool for planning, implementation, and evaluation that links investment to results. The structure of a logic model helps organizations (1) implement strategies that can achieve program goals and (2) define critical metrics of program success, not only by measuring short-term outputs, but by being able to measure and communicate long-term impact.
