Join us on Tuesday, October 10th at 7 PM ET on Twitter @AcademicSurgery.
On this month’s #AASChat led by Dr. Priya Dedhia @priyaknows and Dr. Vikas Dudeja @drvikasdudeja we’ll be discussing Becoming an Independently Funded Basic/Translational Investigator. A few questions that will direct the conversation will include:
Question 1 – Do I need a PhD?
Question 2 – What should I be doing in fellowship to prepare for a career as a bench surgeon-scientist?
Question 3 – What should my startup package include? Recent effort/RVU’s, startup funds, lab space, PhD mentors?
Question 4 – When should I write my first grant as an attending?
Question 5 – What kind of grants should I be applying for?
Question 6 – How many grants a year should I write?
Question 7 – Should I jointly run my lab with a PhD scientist?
