Applications for the 2021 R01 Boot Camp will be solicited in early 2021. Program kick-off is planned for August/September 2021.
The Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation (IHPI) partners with the U-M Medical School’s Mentored Research Academy: R01 Boot Camp to offer a health services research-focused R01 Boot Camp track. This multi-faceted mentoring program is designed to help IHPI early career faculty members develop and submit their first R01 proposal.
The R01 Boot Camp will have a new start date for the 2021 cohort, beginning in August/September 2021. Applications will be available via the IHPI website in early 2021. IHPI looks forward to working with the Medical School to continue to offer a health services research-focused track within this successful program, with a new schedule that will align the program with the academic calendar.
The nine-month Health Services Research R01 Boot Camp features:
- Large group events and workshops (3-4, hosted by the Medical School) that provide the requisite tools and knowledge to write successful R01 proposals. Topics include grant writing, budgets and biostatistics, and time management.
- Interdisciplinary, small group meetings (monthly, hosted by IHPI) that provide coach-led didactic training as well as coach- and peer-facilitated learning opportunities.
- IHPI senior faculty coaches with established track records of external funding and a commitment to mentoring provide group and individual feedback to their assigned participants.
- Participants share and review each other's proposal sections, present Specific Aims Chalk Talks, and provide constructive feedback during each monthly meeting.
- Internal subject matter experts provide one-on-one counsel on participants’ research plans, help them prepare and present a Specific Aims Chalk Talk, and review their proposal drafts.
- External subject matter experts review participants’ final proposals prior to submission.
The IHPI R01 Boot Camp track is open to all U-M assistant and associate professors who are IHPI members, regardless of the school or college in which they are appointed. Applicants must be well-qualified* early career faculty who:
- Are current IHPI members
- Have not been a PI on a previous R01 grant
- Will be ready to submit a health services research-focused R01 proposal within one year
*e.g., good research concept, developed Specific Aims page, and preliminary data
Beginning in 2021, the Medical School’s Mentored Research Academy will offer two R01 Boot Camp tracks: 1) for IHPI members who focus on health services research, and 2) for all researchers (including IHPI members) who focus on basic, clinical and other scientific research. IHPI members with a Medical School appointment may be interested in reviewing both programs to determine which track will best support their proposal development needs.
Application and Selection Process
Applications for the 2021 R01 Boot Camp will be solicited in early 2021. The program kick-off is planned for August/September 2021.
All applicants will utilize the same R01 application portal. IHPI member applications for the health services research track will be reviewed and discussed among an IHPI faculty leadership committee. IHPI member applications for the non-health services research track will be reviewed by the Medical School faculty leadership committee. Applicants for both tracks will be selected for program participation based upon their readiness to prepare an R01 application, as well as a demonstrated need for additional support and guidance in order to submit an R01 successfully. Each selected participant must designate an internal subject matter expert who agrees to fulfill this program's mentoring expectations.
