The 2020 IHPI R01 Boot Camp application period is closed.
Applications for the 2021 IHPI R01 Boot Camp will be available in summer 2020.
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. This multi-faceted mentoring program is designed to help IHPI early career faculty members develop and submit their first R01 proposal.
The nine-month IHPI R01 boot camp begins in January of each year and 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.
- Senior faculty IHPI 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 is open to 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 (fall 2020 or winter 2021 cycles)
*e.g., good research concept, developed Specific Aims page, and preliminary data
IHPI members who have a faculty appointment in the Medical School and/or are members of the Center for Human Growth and Development may be interested in reviewing information on those R01 Boot Camp programs to help determine which program best supports their proposal development needs.
Application and Selection Process
Applications for the IHPI R01 Boot Camp are available annually in Competition Space between mid-August and mid-October. Please note there are multiple boot camp-related applications, so be sure to select the one entitled IHPI R01 Boot Camp – Mentee Application.
All submitted applications will be reviewed and discussed among an IHPI faculty leadership committee. Applicants 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 successfully submit an R01.
