Applications for K12 PCOR fellowship due Sept. 15

Up to three scholar opportunities in patient-centered outcomes research are available for junior faculty members at OHSU through an Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality-funded K12 award. The learning experience features three core elements: a didactic education in patient-centered outcomes research, an individualized experiential plan, and a significant, mentored research experience. Scholars will receive salary support for a minimum of 75% FTE up to a maximum of $90,000 per year – with home departments paying any difference in salary, plus applicable fringe benefits (up to $22,500 per year), and $25,000 per year for research development support costs, such as supplies, research support, and travel. Applicants should propose a research study appropriate to patient-centered outcomes research, including their patient-engagement stakeholder plan, and should identify more than one mentor. This research will be conducted over the two-year award and should lead to a proposal for a K01, K08, K23, or an R01 grant or equivalent.

To be eligible, applicants must 1) be U.S. citizens or non-citizen nationals, or individuals lawfully admitted for permanent residence by September 15, 2014, 2) hold a clinical or health professional doctoral degree or its equivalent, 3) be able to commit a minimum of 75% full-time professional effort to conducting patient-centered outcomes research, 4) have a full-time faculty appointment, and 5) have identified mentors with extensive research experience. Scholars are also required to participate in an evidence review. See OHSU Funding Database for complete opportunity details.

Applications are due September 15, 2014. All application materials should be emailed to Caitlin Dickinson, MPH.
