The Innovaacom program exceeded my expectations and gave me essential tools to write and present grant proposals.

Innovaacom, a leading provider of medical education and training for healthcare professionals worldwide, today announced it is expanding its curriculum in 2015 to include training to increase the success rate of physicians and scientists who are applying for research funding in highly competitive environments. "The Keys to Writing Winning Grant Proposals" continuing education course is designed to improve applicant success rates by helping scientists and medical researchers better understand the strategic policies and project financing availability of funding bodies as well as to learn the proper mechanics of grant writing.

According to recent reports from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the volume of grant submissions has doubled from 31,000 annually in 2001 to 62,000 in 2011 while award success rates are decreasing. Only 17% and 21% of American and United Kingdom applicants respectively received grant approval in 2012 according to the NIH. “The grant writing continuing education course is designed to teach the attributes of ‘grantsmanship’ by helping physicians learn how to find appropriate funding bodies and have their proposals stand out from the crowd to win critical research dollars,” said facilitator Mike Musialowski PhD., who is the Scientific Director of Innovaacom, and has also held positions as a global biotechnology research and development consultant and university lecturer.

The 3-hour course teaches physician’s how to highlight the innovation and impact their research will have in the medical and scientific community to secure a higher priority when grant committees are reviewing multiple proposals. “The Innovaacom program exceeded my expectations and gave me essential tools to write and present grant proposals,” says a hematologist who recently attended the new course. The Innovaacom continuing education course provides physicians and scientists with guidelines on how to position themselves to win grants through a 4-tiered training program that explores: how to effectively locate and target research funding opportunities related to their specialty, how to structure and write a winning proposal that will impact medical knowledge gaps, clinical practice or public health policy, what motivates funding bodies and reviewers to approve or decline grant applications, and how to respond to reviewer feedback.
