Boot Camp Program 2023:
Now in its 11th year, the Delirium Boot Camp is open to researchers from a variety of backgrounds, professions and research areas. While the program is being finalized, here is a working version of the 2023 Boot Camp program. As in previous years, the 2023 Boot Camp will feature an inter-professional faculty of more than 15 nationally-recognized translational and clinical delirium researchers.
While the 2023 Boot Camp theme is Advancing Translational and Implementation Research in Delirium, the program will not be limited to these specific areas. Junior investigators focused on everything from animal model to biomarker to epidemiology to clinical studies to clinical implementation across any patient care setting are encouraged to apply.
Applications from outside the USA are encouraged. There is no fee to attend the Boot Camp. NIDUS covers each mentee's flights, accommodation, and meal costs related to Boot Camp attendance. However, there are a limited number of spots available each year and the application process is selective.
A completed Boot Camp application will include:
- The completed PDF application form available for download above.
- A brief statement of interest as described in the application above.
- A complete mock pilot proposal as described in the application above including abstract, scientific plan, career development and research program statements, and all appendices (biosketch, mentor statement, budget justification, timeline, resources and environment).
