NIMH/VA Implementation Research Institute Invites Applications for Two-Year Training Program

October 26, 2012

The Implementation Research Institute (IRI) invites applications from investigators who wish to conduct ground-breaking research in mental health and implementation science. Funded by a five-year grant from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and VA/HSR&D's Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (QUERI), this unique interdisciplinary training program is targeted for early- to mid-career investigators (PhD/MD) with demonstrated experience and enthusiasm in the study of mental health services, who wish to conduct ground-breaking research in implementation science. Topic areas for research include, but are not limited to: the "uptake" or spread of evidence-based treatments for specific disorders, the implementation of mental health interventions in novel settings, and organizational or policy issues associated with implementation (e.g., costs, organizational climate, and provider training).

The application deadline is February 4, 2013 for the June 2013 cohort. Two VA fellows will be accepted for the June cohort. Go here for more information, including an application, recommendation forms, and specific instructions. Applications will be accepted beginning November 5, 2012.
