2024 Research 101 RFA

CTSI's Workforce Development program is pleased to announce a call for applications for Research 101. The goal of this course is to develop foundational research knowledge and skills for clinicians interested in conducting clinical research. Emphasis will be on the iterative process necessary to transform an idea into a viable research question and then into a well-designed study.

Using a blended learning approach, participants will view online lectures regarding core content coupled with in-person workshop sessions providing opportunities for discussion and application of the content. Relevant CTSI and institutional resources will be highlighted in each session. Participants will develop a research question into a draft application for a CTSI Pilot Grant or similar institutional pilot funding mechanisms.

Time Frame:

Approximately 12 weeks from May through September 2024. The weekly workshop is an hour long session hosted by Dr. Kathryn Callahan and the current week's subject matter experts from 12pm to 1pm on Fridays.


The course is open to physicians and other clinician participants with doctoral training (e.g., Nurse Practitioners or nurses with a DNP, Physician Assistants with a DMSc, etc.) from any region of Atrium Health. Applicants must have a faculty appointment to apply.

Applications are due by April 5, 2024. Participants must submit a letter of support from their department chair or supervisor with their application.
