BC Research Trainees: Want to attend the 2020 KT Canada Summer Institute?

30 January 2020

Knowledge Translation (KT) is ultimately about using health research to improve health – and it is an important element of all MSFHR programs.

We want to grow BC’s capacity for KT across all four pillars of health research. As part of this commitment to KT capacity building, MSFHR is offering to provide travel funding and registration fees to enable up to three BC-based research trainees to attend the 2020 KT Canada Summer Institute, which will be held in Ottawa, ON, June 17 – 19, 2020.

Exploring Intersectionality and KT

The Summer Institute is aimed at graduate students, post-doctoral and clinical fellows, and junior faculty who study issues relevant to KT. The purpose is to provide participants with the opportunity to increase their understanding of knowledge translation research as well as the opportunities and challenges in this field. The Summer Institute will provide participants with the chance to network with colleagues including national KT experts. This year’s theme is: “Intersectionality and KT”.

Supporting BC research trainees

MSFHR is offering to provide travel funding and registration fees to a combined total of $2,900 CDN per person for up to three (3) BC-based research trainees to attend the 2020 KT Canada Summer Institute. Interested individuals must first apply directly to KT Canada – and be accepted by them – to attend their Summer Institute. The first three (3) BC-based research trainees who send their proof of acceptance via email to Gayle Scarrow, MSFHR’s director of Knowledge Translation (gscarrow@msfhr.org) will receive MSFHR travel/registration funding as described above.
