PSI Lunch & Learn Workshops
What is PSI Lunch & Learn?
PSI Lunch & Learn workshops are designed for clinician researchers in Ontario to increase their understanding of PSI’s funding programs and priorities, as well as connect new investigators with well-established PSI grantees. Through this program, PSI aims to connect with our stakeholders from the six medical universities in Ontario and have a greater understanding of barriers that exist in undertaking research funding opportunities.
Recent Workshops at Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and Centre for Education Research & Innovation (CERI)
In June, PSI hosted Lunch & Learn workshops at two institutions: Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and Centre for Education Research & Innovation (CERI) at Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. We had the pleasure of having well-established PSI grantees join us at our workshops to present their successful experiences in research. At CHEO, Dr. Nancy Dudek shared her experience with PSI from a grantee’s perspective, from submitting an application to publishing numerous journal articles in the areas of medical education and amputee rehabilitation. She also provided the attendees with some tips she has learned along the way, when applying for PSI grants. At CERI, Dr. Patrick Luke presented his research in organ transplantation and demonstrated how his PSI grants have helped him establish a strong research program. In addition to the PSI grantees’ presentations, both workshops also included a presentation by PSI, as well as questions and answers (Q&A) period. On behalf of PSI and its Board of Directors, we would like to thank all our attendees and presenters for joining us at our recent workshops.
