Resident Application: CORE Study Section


Opportunity to participate in the 2021 CORE Grants Application Review

The AAO-HNSF and the Centralized Otolaryngology Research Efforts (CORE) Study Section would like to invite six to eight residents to serve on the 2021 CORE Study Section and participate in the review of the 2021 CORE grant applications. This is an invaluable opportunity for residents to learn how to review grants and become better grant writers.

What is a Study Section? The Center for Scientific Review has produced a video of a mock study section meeting to provide an inside look at how NIH grant applications are reviewed for scientific and technical merit (here). The video shows how experts assess applications and how the review meetings are conducted to ensure fairness. The video also includes information on what applicants can do to improve the chances their applications will receive a positive review.

The CORE review process mimics the NIH review of grant applications, so this can be an helpful experience for young investigators.  This opportunity will help residents to strengthen their grant writing skills and prepare them for future review opportunities. Each resident will be paired with one of the more experience CORE Study Section reviewers to help guide them through the process.

Selected residents will be required to:

  • Provide a review of up to 10 assignments (typically as a tertiary reviewer, which is a note-taking role)
  • Attend the March 19 – 20, 2021 CORE Study Section to review grant applications (hotel and travel expenses will be supported by the AAO-HNSF, if applicable)

INTERESTED?  Please submit the following information by 5:00pm (EST) January 4, 2021.

  • Completed application
  • CV
  • Optional – letter of support from your department chair or an active CORE Study Section Reviewer
