TRI Seeking Applications for Implementation Science Scholars Program

The Translational Research Institute (TRI) is seeking applications for UAMS’ first Implementation Science Scholars Program, with awards available for up to five UAMS clinical faculty.

Read the Request for Applications.

Supported by TRI and its Clinical and Translational Science Award, the program will fund faculty interested in learning more about how to implement new practice guidelines and/or other implementation or de-implementation approaches that will improve medical care.

Geoffrey Curran, Ph.D., director of the UAMS Center for Implementation Research, is leading the scholars program.

Using the principles of implementation science, Curran and colleagues will guide faculty through 10 didactic sessions per year and provide oversight and mentoring for experiential implementation science projects. The two-year program will provide 20% salary support and prepare faculty to publish the results of their implementation science projects. Scholars who want to pursue research grants to expand on their accomplishments would receive assistance from the UAMS Center for Implementation Research.

The program is open to all UAMS faculty, including at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Those interested are encouraged to attend Thursday’s information session at ACH. An information session was held Monday on the UAMS campus.
