Grant writing is a difficult and detailed process, especially for a lot of international medical graduates (IMGs) who do not have any research experience. Grant writing adds value to residency programs that are in need of funding for research. As a part of our research fellowship program we help each student understand the language of grant writing and submissions, as well as provide an in-depth walkthrough of the application process.
As a research fellow, you will most likely be asked to submit grant submissions to the National Institute of Health (NIH), foundations, and/or funding contests. Residents Medical will set you up with a Principle Investigator who will walk you through this process and teach you the fundamentals of writing a successful grant proposal. This service typically includes eight sessions, usually given before you enter the research program or at the very start. This way, you will be ready to impress the program directors with the knowledge of grant writing as soon as you begin working on their project.
A successful grant writer not only receives the accolade of getting a proposal properly funded, but also helps hospitals, medical schools and their communities to fiscally support their respective programs and research projects.
