SDN and Osmosis are teaming up to help you get set up for success this school year! We'll be covering study tips, healthy habits, and meeting mentors.
Thoughts? How big of a deal is the t32 grant and how difficult is it to find funding? Do divisions generally find something for you?
Aren't all cards fellowships at least 3 years? why is the 3rd year not funded by GME?
FWIW, there are other grant mechanisms to fund a research year(s). There are foundation grants. There's the NIH F32 which is basically an individual T32 (i.e. pays salary for post-docs/research fellows in programs that don't have a T32). You should also poke around your institution to see what T32s there are whether you could swing your research to qualify for them. T32 directors need their spots filled up in order to maintain the grants at renewal time. As long as you can spin your project to sound relevant to an existing T32, you might have a shot at one. Look at the basic science programs too, not just the clinical departments.
While you'll still get paid at whatever your PGY level says you should, there are huge benefits to having your own funding.
The T32 means the money to pay you comes from the grant rather than your program + PI (which is probably covering some chunk of your salary), which is nice for everybody. It's also a nice line item on your CV.Hey GutOnc-- I know this is half a decade old at this point but I was hoping you could help me. I'm finishing PGY-4 clinical onc year and I'm fortunate enough to be funded to the grave by my fellowship, but my PI has asked me to apply for our institutional T32 (which we have, or are likely to have in the near future). Does this preclude me from applying for other related grants, what is the point? it is just more money for my PI? A feather in my cap or my PI's cap? After 6 years in the hospital, the grant world is foreign to me. Thanks
