The Sleep Research Program for Advancing Careers is to launch the research careers of sleep and circadian investigators. By the end of the 10-month Sleep Research Program for Advancing Careers, early career investigators will have the skills and resources necessary to successfully apply for a National Institutes of Health (NIH), Veteran Affairs (VA), AASM Foundation career development grant, or equivalent award.
This career-building research retreat brings together early career investigators and renowned sleep investigators in clinical and translational sleep medicine research. The research forum provides guidance, tactics, and strategies to better position junior investigators for a successful career in clinical sleep research. Post-docs, clinical fellows, and junior faculty are selected through a competitive application process based on their commitment to a sleep research career.
The AASM Foundation has partnered with the American Medical Association (AMA) Foundation to fund a new scholarship that is being administered by the AMA Foundation’s Physicians of Tomorrow program. A $10,000 scholarship will be provided to a medical student who is interested in pursuing a career in sleep medicine, maintains academic excellence and demonstrates a financial need.
