CIHR New Investigator Salary Award : Health System Impact Embedded Early Career Researcher Award

The Health System Impact (HSI) Embedded Early Career Researcher Award is a new addition to the HSI program that will be launched bi-annually and provides early career researchers (ECRs) the opportunity to:
-develop their embedded research roles and programs;
-apply their research skills to help tackle health system challenges and advance the Quadruple Aim and health equity;
-build their collaborations and partnerships within and across the academic and health system communities; and
-advance their leadership and impact as embedded research scholars.
Overall, the award will help to establish a career pathway for a diverse cohort of embedded ECRs, increase their potential for impact and contribution as embedded scholars, and increase the probability that they will secure an embedded scientist position with a Canadian health system organization and/or a faculty position in a Canadian academic institution. Additionally, in aligning research talent with the operational needs and priorities of health system organizations, the HSI Embedded ECR Award program will generate additional research capacity within health system organizations for learning and improvement, helping to further advance learning health systems (LHSs) across Canada.
