The Team Grant competition supports practice-based research projects and builds health research capacity. Projects for this competition are directly relevant to current health care issues within Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) and Providence Health Care (PHC) and based on the collaboration between health care providers and experienced researchers.
The purpose of these grants is to support VCH/PHC staff and clinicians to conduct applied health research, community based and/or patient oriented research projects to improve practice at VCH and PHC. VCH/PHC health care providers partner with experienced researchers who will mentor them through the entire research process, from proposal to project completion.
You are eligible to be the principal investigator on an application if you are a VCH/PHC physician or staff member. Please see the Team Grant Guidelines for detailed eligibility requirements.
