October 2015 Postgraduate Fellowship
Dec. 21, 2015
We are pleased to announce the results of the October 2015 Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions (AIHS) Training and Early Career Development (TECD) Programs competition for the Postgraduate Fellowship.
Background and Program Objectives
The AIHS TECD Programs focus on the development of the individual trainees and provide them the opportunities to gain broad experience within the health research environment to facilitate success in launching careers in academia, industry, government, or elsewhere.
All applications were reviewed by an interdisciplinary expert review committee as part of a two-stage process. As a result of the review process, applications determined to be of the highest overall quality and merit in the assessment criteria areas were approved to receive AIHS support.
AIHS received a total of 116 submissions in the October 2015 Postgraduate Fellowship competition. The October 2015 competition resulted in the approval of 34 Postgraduate Fellowship awards for an overall success rate of 29%. Formal result letters will be sent to all applicants in January 2016. The names of the successful applicants for the Postgraduate Fellowship awards are listed below. The formal letters will serve as the AIHS official decision should there be any discrepancy with the material on the website.
On behalf of Dr. Pamela Valentine, Intermin CEO of AIHS, and the Board of Directors, we thank all applicants for their substantial efforts and congratulate the recipients of these awards. AIHS also wishes to acknowledge the tremendous assistance provided by its review committee members.
