EARLY CAREER DEVELOPMENT COURSE

WED 21 OCT 2020  //  8:00 AM – 3:00 PM 

The Early Career Development Course is a perennial favorite at ACRM that connects early career rehabilitation researchers with prominent and accomplished professionals. The course will provide opportunities to learn from experts in interdisciplinary team science, government agency representatives, and distinguished scientists who will provide insights through didactic presentations, panel discussions, small group discussions, and one-on-one networking.

The program will include presentations from representatives of major federal agencies discussing new rules and regulations as well as updates on early career opportunities. Officials from NIH, NIDLIRR, VA, and the CDC will be available to give grantsmanship advice based on each organization’s mission and funding priorities.

The Emerging Scholars Panel Session will feature early career research professionals who will share their experiences and insights about grant writing and the successful implementation of research goals.

A renowned keynote speaker, Dr. Theresa Bender Pape, with an outstanding reputation in the field of rehabilitation, will share her work as well as key elements in professional development in keeping with the course theme.

Immediately following the course enjoy a welcome gathering geared especially for Early Career and first-time attendees. At this casual “meet and greet” you can learn about opportunities for networking and collaboration from the heart of ACRM — the ACRM Community Groups. Members from ACRM Interdisciplinary Special Interest and Networking Groups and Task Forces gather and meet, plan and exchange ideas. This is the time and place to find out how to get involved.


Registration for this course is included in the WORLD PASS for incredible value. If you are now purchasing the WORLD PASS, this course is a ticketed event with a separate registration.
