The Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) is accepting applications for the 2020 Clinician Scholar Career Development Program through March 31, 2020. The program will be held September 25-26 in Rosemont, IL.
From the ORS website:
The Clinician Scholar Career Development Program (CSCDP) is an annual two-day training workshop for orthopaedic residents in their PGY2-PGY5 years, surgeons in fellowships, and junior faculty (through year three) who have the potential and desire to become orthopaedic clinician scholars. Clinician scholars advance the field of orthopaedics through innovative research and peer-reviewed funding.
The CSCDP seeks the best and the brightest; CSCDP participants are selected via a highly competitive application process. The program was created in 2003 to address a growing concern over the steady decline of orthopaedic clinician researchers and to confront the lack of basic and clinical research in many residency programs.
The CSCDP covers a wide array of issues spanning the career timeline of a clinician scholar. General session topics that include:
- Beginning Your Career as a Clinician Scientist (Scholar)
- Orthopaedic Research: Bench or Bedside?
- Building Blocks for a Successful Clinician Scientist Career
- Challenges and Successes: Personal Experiences from CSCDP Graduates
- Work-Life Balance
- Research Collaboration
- Resources and Opportunities for Research Funding
Program participants seek to enhance the competencies needed for success as both a surgeon and a scientist: scientific knowledge, professionalism, responsible conduct of research, research skill development, management and leadership skills, and communication skills.
