Fellowship available through Implementation Research Institute
Junior or mid-level investigators interested in utilizing implementation science to advance mental health services are invited to apply for a two-year fellowship with the Implementation Research Institute at Washington University in St. Louis.
Implementation research is the study of processes for integrating empirically supported treatments into usual care. Fellows will receive training, mentorship and help preparing proposals and will travel to an annual National Institutes of Health conference on dissemination and implementation research as part of the program.
The fellowship is available through a National Institute of Mental Health training grant.
Applications for the 2013-2014 fellowship are due Feb. 4. Visit the Washington University website for more details and application instructions.

The AMA is committed to promoting diversity in every facet of organized medicine and encourages nomination of qualified women physicians, minority physicians and international medical graduates for AMA positions on councils.
