Session Description



Funding for Clinical Educational Research:
A Novice Educator's First-Hand Grant Writing Experience

Loreto Lollo (Anesthesiology)

Current economic conditions challenge academic departments to allocate funds for clinician educators conducting educational research. Educational grants provide alternative funding that relieve departments from the financial burden imposed by educators requiring more non-clinical time for research. In this session, the educator will learn the steps, participants, and components in the grant submission process at the University of Washington from the conceptual stage to the final mailing phase. A roadmap including the choice of mentor, peripheral collaborating offices and personnel involved in the grant writing process will be revealed from an educator's first grant submission experience.
