Queen's Research Credit Program

Biomedical research is a core prerequisite for evidence-based medicine, excellence in patient care and increased quality of patient life. To support multi-disciplinary and translational research efforts at The Queen's Medical Center (QMC), the Office of Research and Development (ORD) has launched a comprehensive program to foster biomedical research across the hospital.

The program is built on the concept of obtaining research credits at ORD-designated research seminars and conferences held on Queen's campus in order to foster multi-disciplinary research collaborations and gain eligibility for an annual competitive research seed grant application. QMC medical staff, full-time employees and part-time employees with a research focus are eligible to receive research credits (RC). Eight (8) RCs will be needed for research seed grant eligibility. For a complete list of eligibility criteria, please refer to the most current Request for Proposals (RFP), which will be posted on the ORD webpage (http://ord.queens.org). Research credits expire after 24 months.

One (1) research credit is earned by participation in one of the following activities (most of them are on a monthly schedule), and as tracked by sign-up sheets. All activities are open to QMC medical staff and employees to attend. Please RSVP with person of contact.
