Physical therapist investigators have an opportunity to receive guidance in getting their research funded and "other survival skills required for pursuing an academic career" through a program that connects them with experienced researcher-mentors.

The United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) and Bone and Joint Canada are now accepting applications for the Young Investigator Initiative, a career development and grant mentoring program. Investigators chosen for the program will attend 2 workshops 12 to 18 months apart and work with faculty between workshops to develop grant applications.

This grant mentoring workshop series is open to promising junior faculty, senior fellows, or postdoctoral researchers nominated by their department or division chairs. It also is open to senior fellows or residents who are doing research and have a faculty appointment in place or confirmed and have a commitment to protected time for research. Basic and clinical investigators, with or without training awards, are invited to apply.

Application requirements and more details can be found at the USBJI website. Deadline is January 15, 2019, to participate in the next workshop, April 26-28, 2019, in Rosemont, Illinois.

APTA is a founding member of USBJI.
