Grant Writing Workshop

November 17 - 18, 2023 at the Hyatt Regency, Bethesda, MD, USA

The two-day seminar, located in Bethesda, MD, is designed to offer a brief but thorough overview of the process of putting together and submitting a grant. The course will also cover multiple sources of funding including the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, and Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as private foundations. The faculty consists of early-, mid-, and late-career cardiothoracic surgeons familiar with obtaining and maintaining grants, as well as representatives from the NIH and the VA Health System who are familiar with the funding opportunities available through their respective organizations. The seminar will also contain a mock study section meant to familiarize the attendees with the realistic way the grants are evaluated. In addition, a “meet and greet dinner” will allow for interaction in a more informal setting.
