Application due date: February 23, 2018


The Mentored Training in Implementation Science (MTIS) career development program aims to prepare scholars to become independent Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) researchers focused on Heart, Lung, Blood and Sleep (HLBS) disorders. The MTIS is a K12 program led by world renowned leaders in D&I research, Mario Castro, MD, Ross Brownson, PhD and Enola Proctor, PhD. The program provides personalized educational pathways that allow scholars to identify competencies to address their specific goals and anticipated career trajectory. There are two program pathways: a degree program in which the scholar can earn a MSCI, MPH, or MPHS degree and a 2-year fellowship at Washington University followed by a 1-year mentored research practicum at their home institute; or the mentored training program in which the scholar receives a 2-year mentored research practicum at their home institute.

MTIS will provide up to 75% of the scholar’s salary (up to $100,000 per year) and $30,000 per year to support research, tuition and travel.
