Deadline Approaching: Submit Your Application to the 2013 F.I.T. Program


PBRN

The ACCP Research Institute (RI) will host the 2013 Focused Investigator Training (F.I.T.) Program at the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy in Athens, Georgia, from July 27 to July 31, 2013. The F.I.T. Program is an intensive, 5-day, hands-on program for up to 18 experienced clinical pharmacist-investigators who have not yet been awarded significant peer-reviewed extramural funding as principal investigators. Through this mentored program, the pharmacist-investigator will take the necessary steps toward preparing a K, R01, or similar investigator-initiated application for submission to the NIH or other major funding source.

The RI’s Board of Trustees has approved a F.I.T. Program scholarship to provide tuition support for one researcher whose 2013 F.I.T. proposal incorporates the ACCP Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN). In addition, the following PRNs have announced their offers of full or partial support for an applicant accepted to the 2013 F.I.T. Program who is a member of the respective PRN:

  • Critical Care PRN: 1 full-tuition scholarship for $3750
  • Education and Training PRN: 1 partial-tuition scholarship for $1875
  • Hematology/Oncology PRN: 1 full-tuition scholarship for $3750
  • Immunology/Transplantation PRN: 1 full-tuition scholarship for $3750

There is still time to submit an application by the March 31, 2013, deadline. The 2013 F.I.T. application and brochure may be downloaded from http://www.accpri.org/investigator/.
