Applications are being accepted for the ICES Faculty Scholars Program’s fourth training cycle, 2019-2021. It is a two-year, part-time learning opportunity for Ontario-based academic faculty who wish to develop their skills in population health research.
The program provides access to linkable health administrative databases housed at ICES and fosters the development of interdisciplinary research collaborations among peers and experts across the ICES network.
“The Faculty Scholars Program through ICES gives individuals passionate about population health and health services research the data and expertise to make better policy and stronger health care for healthier people,” says Dr. Amit Garg, Lawson Scientist and ICES Western Site Director and Program Lead.
“Past Scholars have made many meaningful contributions and helped feature London as a Canadian leader in today’s knowledge-based economy. We can’t wait to see what the new Scholars come up with during their time with the program.”
Since 2013, over 40 researchers have been trained from a variety of clinical and non-clinical backgrounds including anaesthesia and perioperative medicine, clinical neurological sciences, epidemiology and biostatistics, family medicine, medicine, nursing, obstetrics and gynaecology, oncology, otolaryngology, paediatrics, psychiatry and surgery. They have won national awards and have published a number of peer-reviewed journal articles as first authors.
To be considered for the 2019-2021 cycle of the Faculty Scholars Program, you must hold an appointment of assistant professor or higher at a recognized Ontario university, a master’s or doctoral degree with a focus on quantitative research methods, and a strong desire to become an ICES Scientist.
Applications for the 2019–2021 program will be accepted until January 18, 2019. Any questions regarding the program, applications or eligibility can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
