DHSA plans workshop on collaborative education for clinicians and scientists
2:22 p.m., Dec. 8, 2011--The Delaware Health Sciences Alliance (DHSA) will host “Creating Clinical and Research Teams for the Future: Workshop on Collaborative Education for Clinicians and Scientists” on Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2012, at the Ammon Education Center of Christiana Hospital.
All grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and many from the National Institutes of Health require educational or mentoring components for their grant applications. This workshop focuses on developing skills to write educational grants. The program will include information on how to obtain educational grant funding, set goals and evaluate an educational program, and develop an application for the DHSA Education Pilot Award.
June 20: Ocean Currents Lecture
Through June 28: Kasebier exhibition
Members of the DHSA Curriculum and Education Task Force will provide mentorship throughout the day and will work with workshop participants to develop robust teams to deliver cutting-edge team-based education to future clinicians and scientists, consistent with the changing needs of health care and research organizations.
All interested faculty from A.I. duPont/Nemours, Christiana Care Health System, Thomas Jefferson University, and the University of Delaware with ideas for new or expanded education or training at any level (undergraduate, professional, graduate, continuing education, or faculty development) are encouraged to attend. Attendance is free, and meals will be provided, but seating is limited and advance registration is required.
