C6 - Early Career Research Training Symposium: A Roadmap to Academic Success for Residents and Fellows

Event Time: Saturday April 22, 2017 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
Topic(s): Research Methodology, Education, and History
Director(s): Peter Todd MD, PhD, Myla Goldman MD, MSC
Description: This program will provide information to early-stage neurologists (senior residents, fellows, instructors, and junior faculty in their first two years) who are embarking on an academic career in neurologic research (clinical, basic, or translational) with a focus on acquiring a career development award. Didactic lectures and small group sessions will focus on preparing for competitive grant submissions to the NIH, major foundations, and the American Brain Foundation, as well as core principles of publishing impactful reports, academic career development, and productive mentor-mentee relationships. Attendees will receive information critical to their transition from residency, fellowship, and early faculty to investigative independence in academic neurology. In order to facilitate the mentoring sessions, attendees are asked to identify their interest in basic or clinical research and their specific area of interests for research.
Completion Message: Participants should gain essential information about the core components of a successful K award application and other mentored career development grants, developing and maintaining productive mentor-mentee relationships, guidelines for development of a successful research career (finding the right question), strategies for successful scientific writing, and suggestions for addressing the competing demands that are common at the start of an academic career. This also serves as a valuable networking opportunity with fellow junior academic neurologists and leaders in the field.
CME Credits: 7.5
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge
