TCRC Application Form
The course is designed to further the development of young physician-scientists interested in or engaged in translational or clinical neuroscience research. This three-day course will provide selected research fellows, residents, and junior faculty members with strategies for career development and developing research grant proposals that are designed to encourage trainees and junior faculty to pursue careers in academic neurology.
The sequence of topics will include sessions geared towards early stages of career development along with as unique opportunities to interact with senior clinician-leaders and current clinician scientists that are well-placed to facilitate the success of neurology’s next generation of academic and research-focused faculty.
Talks, small group discussions, and case examples will be used as learning strategies. Small group discussions will also allow participants to further explore and develop specific areas of interest. Each day will also include time for networking with other participants and speakers.
The course is scheduled to take place on July 23 through July 25, 2017 at the Chicago Booth Gleacher Center in Chicago, IL.
