NIDUS Career Development

A major NIDUS priority is providing mentorship and career development opportunities. As a result, we seek trainees, junior faculty, and mid-career researchers who are new to the delirium field. These opportunities include a virtual mentorship program, quarterly mentoring webinars, and other lectures and training opportunities throughout the year.

We use the annual NIDUS Delirium Boot Camp to mentor early-career researchers in an intensive setting. This annual training event is open to researchers from a variety of professions, backgrounds, and research areas. However, there are limited available spaces at Boot Camp each year. As such, applying doesn't necessarily guarantee your spot. The application due date is July 10, 2023, 5pm EST. 

Currently, we have more than 110 Delirium Boot Camp alumni worldwide. In addition to participants from the U.S., attendees have come from Canada, South America, the European Union and Australia.

Learn more about Boot Camp as well as the application process on the NIDUS Boot Camp page. Also, learn the value of attending Boot Camp from a prior Attendee and current Faculty.
