A major NIDUS priority is providing mentorship and career development opportunities for trainees, junior faculty, or mid-career researchers new to the delirium field. These opportunities include a virtual mentorship program, the annual NIDUS Delirium Boot Camp, quarterly mentoring webinars, and other lectures and training opportunities throughout the year.
NIDUS Delirium Boot Camp
Having recently finished its 10th iteration, the Delirium Boot Camp is open to researchers from a variety of professions, backgrounds and research areas. However, the selective application process means there are limited available spaces each year.
Currently, we have more than 100 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. Visit our NIDUS Boot Camp page for more details about the event as well as the application process.
NIDUS hosts interactive mentoring webinars quarterly. So far in 2022, our webinars include Pilot Awards – Developing a competitive LOI/Submitting a successful application with Dr. Michael Avidan, Being Truly Responsive: How to Win Over Your Reviewers with Dr. Sharon Inyoue, our NIDUS Career Development Award Research Mentoring Session with Dr. Tom Gill, Optimizing Delirium Assessment in Research Proposals with Dr. Richard Jones, and two Pilot Award Letter of Intent Information Sessions with Dr. Frederick Sieber.
Past webinar series include topics such as Using NIDUS Resources for Career Development and Collaboration, Disseminating Delirium Research, and Clinical Trials.
