The IU School of Medicine Skill Enhancement Award provides associate professors the opportunity to acquire new skills to accelerate the trajectory of their career toward full professor.
The skill enhancement experiences are expected to occur away from campus over a time frame of two to five weeks. Examples include, but are not limited to:
- Visiting an institution to engage with a collaborator to learn a new technique.
- Attending technique/equipment training workshops
Awards are not intended to be used to travel to traditional scientific/clinical conferences although combining a conference with additional immersive experience may be considered.
