Eligibility Requirements

This training is designed for investigators at any career stage interested in conducting D&I research with a focus on the cancer continuum. To be eligible, participants must NOT have matriculated through other NIH-supported implementation science training programs (e.g. TIDIRH exit disclaimer, MT-DIRC exit disclaimer, IRI exit disclaimer). To be eligible, participants must NOT have current R18, R01, or R01-equivalent funding as a Principal Investigator for D&I research and may not have received such funding in the past 5 years. Note: Investigators who have received an R01 or equivalent are eligible, if the funding was not specifically for D&I research. Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate experience with—or potential for—working effectively in transdisciplinary teams and who have strong partnerships with—or are embedded within—health care delivery, public health, or community-based networks. We seek a balance of both junior and senior investigators, with the overall goal of bringing new people into the field of D&I research. While we anticipate that most participants will be early- to mid-career individuals, we will enroll a limited number of senior researchers who are making the switch to D&I research.

In addition, to be eligible, participants must meet all the following criteria:

Applicants are NOT required to be citizens, permanent residents, or non-citizen nationals of the United States. There is no fee to apply to or attend the institute. However, all applicants are responsible for arranging and paying for their travel to attend.

Attendance at the in-person training will NOT be permitted to those who have not actively participated in the online course and completed the required coursework.
