Grant Writing Bootcamp

Co-sponsored with the DGSOM Office of Physician Scientist Career Development

This bootcamp is targeted for physician scientist faculty who plan to submit an NIH K or R grant. We will provide step-by-step, hands-on grant writing support through a series of bimonthly in-person meetings to give real-time interactive feedback while the faculty member prepares their K or R application, culminating in an NIH grant submission. Contact for information about open enrollment periods.
