This two day workshop will provide a unique opportunity for trainees to learn about the art and science of clinical research from leading experts in the field.
Participants will work with outstanding faculty mentors to design and present research proposals. Didactic talks and small group sessions will focus on development of research protocols, presentation skills, grant-writing and charting a research career path. There will be opportunities for networking with peers and faculty at casual social events.
How to apply:
Applicants will be required to develop a one-page clinical research proposal. All protocols must, in some fashion, be related to the study of
atrial fibrillation and/or cardioembolic events. A completed application form must be submitted along with a copy of the applicant’s curriculum vitae, and letter of recommendation from the appropriate Program Director or Associate Dean. Additional information and application materials are available at cspin.ca or by contacting Dr. Lisa Welikovitch.
The deadline for submission of application materials is November 21, 2016. Ten trainees will be invited to participate. Successful applicants will be assigned a research mentor who will work with the trainee prior to, and during the retreat to offer feedback, guidance, and support.
