The Penn State Strategic Initiatives, via the thematic priority Enhancing Health, has provided funding for an exchange fellowship to stimulate partnerships among faculty clinicians and non-clinician faculty researchers and engineers, bridging interests, resources and expertise to unite patient care with other scholarly disciplines.
The Stimulating Partnerships Among Researchers and Clinicians Clinical Research Exchange Fellowship will allow each partner to immerse in the other partner’s realm. Clinical faculty members will spend time in scholarly contexts across the University and a non-clinician faculty member will spend time in the clinical environment.
The goal of the program is to initiate and nurture interdisciplinary collaborations as a powerful way to address unmet medical needs while, simultaneously, expanding health sciences research at Penn State. Applications in response to this request for application may initially request up to $7,500 per partner for teaching or clinical buyout (minimum 5% effort to a maximum 10% effort) for a six-month period (Level 1 funding).
Clinicians can be any practicing health professional in Penn State Health or the College of Nursing at any site, with a Penn State faculty appointment. researchers can be anyone with a full-time faculty appointment in any Penn State college and on any campus.
