Quality in Endoscopic Research Award
Submission Deadline: January 31, 2014 at 5pm CST.
This award will fund studies to measure or improve quality of care (clinical or patient-oriented or physician behavior outcomes) and/or efficiency in gastrointestinal endoscopy, such as studies to improve the quality of screening colonoscopy. The research committee will consider feasibility/pilot/validation studies if there is an explicit justification for needing preliminary data in anticipation of a subsequent, more definitive, fundable study.
To foster research relating to measuring quality in gastrointestinal endoscopy both in the academic and private practice setting.
Candidate must be an ASGE member (ASGE membership at the time of application is a requirement for eligibility for grants and awards), be an MD (or have equivalent degree), and be currently practicing in a gastrointestinal endoscopy-related academic institution or private practice setting in North America. Candidates who are delinquent on prior ASGE research grant progress reports are not eligible for future ASGE funding. If the candidate is a trainee, there must be a letter from the Division Chief confirming the trainee's ongoing appointment at the institution for the duration of the grant, and their position title, and/or a contingency plan.
Grants may be requested for up to $75,000 in total funding, and spread over two years of study. Note: If the application is not selected for the Quality in Endoscopy Research Award, it will still be considered for an Endoscopic Research Award.
Requests for funding "seed" projects that will lead to further research, as well as larger requests for definitive clinical trials will be considered. In order to maximize the funds available for research, money for travel to meetings will not be provided, nor will funding be provided for indirect costs.
Grants are awarded based on the scientific merit of the proposal and assessment of the investigator's ability to complete the project (supportive environment, experience, training, availability of patients and other resources needed). The proposed research project must be approved by the ASGE Research Committee and should also be of such quality as to lead to presentation at Digestive Disease Week and subsequent full publication. One objective of these ASGE awards is the eventual submission of larger research funding requests, including federal funding, and proposals with such potential will be given priority.
Endoscopic Research Awards
Submission Deadline: January 31, 2014 at 5pm CST.
ASGE Endoscopic Research Awards are offered to physicians for projects in basic, translational and clinical endoscopic research. The ASGE is particularly interested in endoscopic research pertaining to colorectal cancer, Barrett's esophagus, endoscopy training/credentialing/simulation, endoscopic issues specific to under-represented minorities (defined as women and individuals of diverse ethnic/cultural backgrounds), measuring/improving quality and efficiency in endoscopy, endoscope reprocessing and infection control (especially vacuum canisters), endoscopy/anesthesia monitoring and preparation (especially CO2 monitoring), comparative effectiveness with competing technologies/therapies, NOTES, novel endoscopic treatments for obesity, endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and other endoscopically-guided imaging/intervention. The research committee will consider funding "seed" projects if there is an explicit outline for subsequent projects, and their funding plan (e.g. NIH, VA Merit), based on the preliminary data generated by the proposed pilot.
To foster research in routine and advanced gastrointestinal endoscopy.
Candidate must be an ASGE member (ASGE membership at the time of application is a requirement for eligibility for grants and awards), be an MD (or have equivalent degree), and be currently practicing in a gastrointestinal endoscopy-related academic institution or private practice setting in North America (international applications will be considered as described below). Candidates who are delinquent on prior ASGE research grant progress reports are not eligible for future ASGE funding. If the candidate is a trainee, there must be a letter from the Division Chief confirming the trainee's ongoing appointment at the institution for the duration of the grant, and their position title, and/or a contingency plan.
Grants are awarded based on the scientific merit of the proposal and assessment of the investigator's ability to complete the project (supportive environment, experience, training, availability of patients and other resources needed). The proposed research project must be approved by the ASGE Research Committee and should also be of such quality as to lead to presentation at Digestive Disease Week® and subsequent full publication. One objective of these ASGE awards is the eventual submission of larger research funding requests, including federal funding, and proposals with such potential will be given priority.
ASGE International Members are eligible to apply for an Endoscopic Research Award (Current ASGE membership is a requirement of eligibility for grants and awards). The ASGE Research Committee will consider funding one international project for up to $75,000. The project justification should explain the relevance of the project to the ASGE membership, and should explain if there are unique reasons why an international location for the project might be more feasible than in North America. All other standards listed above will apply to international applicants. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Liz O'Keefe at 630.570.5623 for more information on eligibility.

American Psychiatric Association Public Psychiatry Fellowship Program
Funded by The American Psychiatric Foundation and Bristol-Myers Squibb
Deadline: December 12, 2013
The purposes of the American Psychiatric Association Public Psychiatry Fellowship Program are to (1) provide experiences that will contribute to the professional development of residents who will play future leadership roles within the public sector psychiatry, (2) heighten awareness of the public psychiatry activities and career opportunities and (3) to provide a community of peers with shared interest in public psychiatry. Since the program's founding in 1980, the fellowship has been awarded to more than 300 outstanding residents.
APA Public Psychiatry Fellows are active participants in selected APA components and the Institute on Psychiatric Services (IPS). Based on their expressed interests, fellows are assigned to an APA component and take part in all deliberations, projects, and initiatives. They receive sponsorship to attend component meetings held in September in Arlington, VA. For many years, APA Public Psychiatry Fellows have had prominent roles in the Institute on Psychiatric Services. The program provides sponsorship to attend two Institutes. Over the course of the fellowship term, fellows work collaboratively to plan a series of workshops that will be presented at their second IPS. Members of the Fellowship Selection Committee serve as mentors in this process. Each fellowship class selects representatives to the APA's Board of Trustees and the IPS Scientific Program Committee, as well as to the Board of Directors of the American Association of Community Psychiatrists. Funding to attend the APA Annual Meeting or component meetings held during it is not provided.
