Models for merging patient care and research are growing in number and sophistication around the globe and being further recognized and solidified as an integral part of the research success at research-intensive institutions. Inherent in the approach is the need to combine clinical medical practice and clinical research.
The Research Mentorship Colloquium provides expertise and training to support early career clinical researchers to take a clinical question and design a research project. Funding will be available through a competitive process for at least one of the projects at the end of the program, with the overall goal of enhancing the research success of early career clinical investigators, by supporting and contributing to their efforts to secure external research funding.
Each session consists of a 30-minute presentation, a 30-minute full group discussion, and a 30-minute break-out for each participant to work with advisors/mentors. At the conclusion of the program, funding will be available to support a number of clinical research projects.
It is a partnership between Nova Scotia Health (through the Nova Scotia Health Innovation Hub), Dalhousie University (Faculty of Medicine), the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation, the IWK Health Centre, and the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation, who recognize that the path to continued success in the area of clinical research is through continued collaboration.
