The American Brain Foundation, the foundation of the American Academy of Neurology, is pleased to announce a two-year fellowship to support clinical research training in the field of ataxia. The fellowship is supported by the American Brain Foundation and the National Ataxia Foundation. Each fellowship will consist of a commitment of $55,000 per year for two years, plus $10,000 per year for tuition to support formal education in clinical research methodology at the applicant’s institution or elsewhere.
Applicant must be an AAN member interested in an academic career in clinical research who has completed residency, fellowship, or a post-doctoral fellowship (for a PhD) within the past five years. Those early in their clinical research careers will be given priority.
The Centre for Blood Research Seminar Series
Date: May 8th, 2013 12:00 – 1:00pm
Location: LSC 3 – Life Sciences Centre, 2350 Health Sciences Mall
“Disease eradication” by Dr. Mark Bigham
Physician, Canadian Blood Services
Medical Health Officer, Fraser Health
Host: Dr. Ed Pryzdial
Please see the attached GR 05312013for more information.
Date: October 25, 2013 8:30am – 4:00pm
The hands-on portion of the course will take place at the Center of Excellence for Simulation Innovation and Education (CESEI) at Vancouver General Hospital, where experienced instructors will demonstrate the procedures and supervise the students as they practice on animal and realistic plastic models. Finally, the students will have the opportunity to integrate performance of these procedures into the real-time resuscitation of a critically ill patient using the latest Human Patient Simulator technology to create realistic scenarios. Before the course, the students will have access to web-based learning modules. These online modules will include videos, animations, powerpoint lectures, and select articles from the literature that demonstrate the cognitive aspects of performing the procedure. Students will complete this self-directed learning at their convenience, before arriving for the one-day hands-on procedure lab and human patient simulator sessions.
Up to 15 MAINPRO M1, Section 1, and AMA Category 1 CreditsTM
