About Delirium Boot Camp Attendees

Boot Camp is open to researchers from a variety of backgrounds and research areas, however, the application process is selective due to the limited number of spots available each year. 85 investigators have attended previous Boot Camps. 90 percent of attendees report their delirium research programs are ongoing. Boot Campers have collectively submitted 30 NIH grants, 13 of which have been awarded.

  • Previous training in the fundamentals of clinical research
  • At least 1-2 years of previous research experience
  • Hold an MD, PhD, or other doctoral level degree (may consider strong advanced predoctoral candidates in this area)

  • Must have 50% protected time for research
  • Once accepted, willingness to devote 8-10 hours of advance preparation time for the Bootcamp (beyond preparing the application and proposal)
