Applications Invited for Implementation Science Scholar Awards 

Applications Invited for Implementation Science Scholar Awards 

The UAMS Translational Research Institute (TRI) and the Center for Implementation Research today are inviting applications for the second class of Implementation Science Scholars.

The two-year program will support clinical faculty in learning and applying the principles and methods of implementation science—the study of how best to promote systematic uptake of research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine care. The program provides 20% salary support and prepares faculty to publish the results of their implementation science projects. Eligible applicants include UAMS clinical faculty with a professional degree (M.D., Ph.D., Pharm.D., D.N.P., Dr.PH., D.O., etc.).

The program is led by Geoffrey Curran, Ph.D., director of the UAMS Center for Implementation Research and supported by TRI and its Clinical and Translational Science Award.

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. 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 full-time UAMS faculty, including at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Those interested are encouraged to attend one of the information sessions.

Information sessions via Zoom will be:
