Faculty Career Development Series

Career Development Series

The ITHS Career Development Series consist of monthly lectures and workshops designed to provide junior faculty and investigators with tools, a forum for discussion, and learning opportunities to help advance their careers.

Topics

Topics are selected based on an annual needs assessment.

Example topics include:

  • How to Write an NIH K Award
  • Making the Most of your Mentor Relationship
  • Mastering Public Speaking as a Researcher
  • Communicating your Findings Visually
  • What really happens in an NIH Study Review

Where can I find a CDS event?

ITHS partners with several UW campus and WWAMI regional partners to ensure we reach and engage the translational workforce with each series. CDS events occur across the main UW campus, in the UW Medicine South Lake Union building, and are often captured on video and edited for online distribution to our regional partners. Many of our offerings are also broadcast live as webinars to allow for flexible viewing opportunities. Check out the calendar for specific upcoming event topics and locations.

Storing and Managing Data in the 21st Century @ On-Line Event
Jul 15 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Description

This session will provide an overview of modern data management in research and describe how the Internet has changed our approach to data collection and curation.  The discussion will follow the framework of FAIR, which aspires to have data that is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reuseable. This presentation will highlight the types of resources that are available and the underlying technologies that drive them.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the session, participants will:

  1. Be aware of the challenges for modern research data management.
  2. Understand the basic concepts of making data more FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reuseable).
  3. Have some ideas on where research data technologies are headed.

Evidence Synthesis Primer: A Step by Step Guide @ On-Line Event
Jul 22 @ 10:15 am – 11:45 am

Description

A synthesis of contemporary research evidence forms the foundation of all health science scholarly projects. However, a consistent, systematic and reproducible approach for managing and reporting research evidence is often lacking. In this session step by step instructions for managing and reporting research evidence will be presented.

Participants will be guided in the use of their PICO-formatted clinical question to search for relevant research evidence. Downloaded abstracts constitute the foundation of an evidence catalog. The evidence catalog will be updated to reflect critical appraisal of the relevant research evidence. A framework for synthesis and summary of research evidence will be presented.

Pre-Work

Bring your PICO-formatted clinical question to this workshop and complete step Dr. Daratha’s step by step process for building your evidence library, your evidence catalog, your critical appraisal of your evidence, and your research synthesis.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the session, participants will:

  1. Be able to retrieve the relevant research evidence supporting a clinical question.
  2. Be able to critically appraise the selected research evidence.
  3. Be able to synthesize the research evidence to answer a clinical question.

Schedule of Activities

  • 10:15-10:25am – Welcome, Overview, Introductions
  • 10:25-11:25am – Presentation
  • 11:25-11:40am – Questions and Answer Section
