The American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Foundation is offering a Practice Research Training Fellowship to support training in clinical practice research, which is defined as "clinical research that evaluates translation of evidence into best clinical practice." This may include evaluation of health services, quality of care, implementation of proven therapies, physician performance, or patient adherence. The fellowship is intended to create unique training opportunities, previously difficult to access for neurologists. The proposed research must be directed to care in the clinical neurosciences and must meet the definition of clinical practice research. For example, clinical trials of therapies would not meet the definition of clinical practice research but trials of methods to improve physician adherence to guidelines would.

The applicant must be an AAN member interested in an academic career in clinical practice research. The applicant must identify a mentor who is a proven clinical practice researcher. This person does not have to be a neurologist, and the proposed research may be distinct from that of the mentor. For example, an expert in patient adherence or quality improvement in general medicine might be an excellent mentor for a fellow interested in studying these issues in the clinical neurosciences. Other appropriate mentors might include health services researchers, health economists, or health policy experts. The applicant must be nominated by the chair of the department of neurology at which the fellow's training and research program will occur.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, September 21, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to a one-page overview of 1) the training to be provided, and 2) the research to be pursued, along with a 2-page biographical sketch of the applicant.
