Mentored Training in Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (MT-DIRC) [Due Date: Jan 9, 2017]
Application Opens: October 31st, 2016
Application Due Date: January 9th, 2017
The MT-DIRC program is an innovative D&I training program that combines a week-long summer institute each of a Fellow’s two years in the program with mentoring in between each of the in-person institutes. Each year, the institute accepts a new cohort of fellows with the final cohort being accepted in 2017. Fellows begin the program by attending the summer institute in St. Louis during June of the year of their initial acceptance. After their initial attendance at the summer institute, fellows are paired up with a faculty member for ongoing mentoring during the academic year. Fellows then attend a second summer institute the following June and will continue with a final year of mentoring. The total length of the program is 2 years.
Applications are encouraged from doctorally-trained individuals (e.g. PhDs, MDs, DrPH) who wish to focus on D&I research in the areas of the cancer continuum (prevention, detection, treatment, survivorship, etc.). MT-DIRC Fellows should be early career researchers (within five years of conferral of their doctorate). Applications from a smaller number of mid-career scholars who want to pursue D&I research will also be accepted. Diverse scholars from a range of disciplines (PhDs, MDs, social scientists, psychologists), institutions, and geography are encouraged to apply. Non-U.S. researchers are also welcome.
Applications will be accepted starting October 31, 2016 and will continue through January 9, 2017.
