Jul. 13, 2016
We are pleased to announce the results of the April 2016 Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions (AIHS) Training and Early Career Development (TECD) Programs competitions (Graduate Studentship and Clinician Researcher Training Stream).
The April 2016 competitions resulted in the approval of 20 Graduate Studentship, 2 MD-PhD Studentship and 7 Clinician Fellowship awards.
AIHS received a total of 302 submissions which included 237 Graduate Studentship and 65 Clinician Researcher (9 MD-PhD Studentship and 56 Clinician Fellowship) applications.
All applications were reviewed by interdisciplinary expert review committees as part of a two-stage process. Applications were funded based on their overall quality and merit in the assessment criteria areas and on available AIHS funds. Our priority is to honour our current, multi-year commitments while focusing on finding additional leveraged sources of funding to continue to support the development of future health research and innovation leaders in Alberta.
