Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar ProgramClinical Scholars Program

RWJF Change Leadership Programs: Accepting Applications
As you know the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is launching four new programs as part of their Advancing Change Leaders national initiative to achieve a Culture of Health. Each program will have a different focus (post docs, junior faculty, mid-career clinicians, and leaders outside of clinical practice). Selected candidates remain in their current communities and apply as teams. Please click on the links below to view the call for applications for each program. Their hope is to have as diverse an applicant pool as possible and that all potentially eligible candidates know about the new focus of the programs. The Foundation welcomes your support in spreading the word and encouraging individuals to apply.

This seminar will cover a variety of best practices for writing clear and engaging prose, and organizing your proposal to meet the needs of the reviewer. This session is primarily aimed at the needs of faculty, but may be of interest to postdocs or advanced graduate students.
