NIBIB Research Education Programs for Residents and Clinical Fellows
This FOA encourages applications from institutions/organizations that propose to support the development and/or implementation of programs that relate to the research education and training of residents and clinical fellows to foster their careers as clinician-scientists. The NIH recognizes a unique and compelling need to promote diversity in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical and social sciences research workforce. Accordingly, the NIH continues to encourage institutions to diversify their student and faculty populations and thus to increase the participation of individuals currently underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences such as: individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups; individuals with disabilities, and individuals from socially, culturally, economically, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds.
The PD(s)/PI(s) must have a faculty appointment in a Department of Radiology and the participants in this research education program must be residents and clinical fellows in programs including, but not limited to, cardiology, neurology, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, radiology, or surgery
As the School of Medicine may only submit 1 proposal for this opportunity, the Office of Research and Graduate Education has established an internal review process to determine which proposal(s) will move forward to the funding agency.
