Registration Now Open — Early Career Grant Proposals Writing Seminar

In conjunction with the UWSMPH, the DOM is partnering with Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to provide the virtual “Early Career Grant Writing” seminar on February 2 & 3, 2023, from 9 am to 12:30 pm each day.  This is the same company and presenter that has brought to the department the popular “Write Winning NIH Grant Proposals” seminar.

This newest seminar is designed to demystify the National Institutes of Health (NIH) K and, to a lesser extent, F32 grant writing process for early-career faculty, researchers/scientists (MD/PhD level), research administrators, postdocs primarily involved in research-oriented study, and fellows on T32s or in the Physician-Scientist Training Program (PSTP).

The seminar is at no cost to all attendees.  A required textbook, The Grant Application Writer’s Workbook – NIH version, is provided at no cost to UWSMPH faculty. 

Registrants who didn’t attend the “Write Winning NIH Grant Proposals” seminar in April 2022 and aren’t faculty with UWSMPH will need to provide a funding string for a $95 required textbook fee in order to complete the registration process.

For more information, please see the seminar webpage.
