Write CIPC Training Into Your Grant Proposal

business meeting of six people

We have experience, let us help.

Organizations often approach us to help with their unique needs. You may want a tailored course to focus on a specific patient population, or to support the professional development of a specialty discipline. The eventual audience might be behavioral health professionals, physicians, or even students in healthcare professions.  Frequently, the organizations who contact us for help are applying for a state or federal grant to fund staff training or build capacity to address a community's need.

After conversations to understand your objectives, budget, and timeline, we are able to develop a proposal for customized training that fits the parameters of the grant.  Our proposals might include slices of existing courses, developing a new training program, or adapting an existing course with supplemental interactions either live or virtual.  We have a good deal of experience conducting Project ECHO programs and similar virtual discussions that include case presentations with group feedback and learning. 

And we are happy to write letters of support for grant submissions for those organizations with whom we work.   

We understand local, state, and federal funding agencies and their processes, and CIPC faculty have received grant funding from multiple sources to support clinical and research interests.  Daniel Mullin, PsyD, MPH is a Senior Scientist in the National Research Network of the American Academy of Family Physicians.  Below are some of the grants with which he has had substantial involvement.
