iTHRIV Scholars Program

A cornerstone of the integrated Translational Health Research Institute of Virginia is the iTHRIV Scholars Program.  This competitive program prepares trainees to excel in a transformed biomedical research environment in which digital data drives health care hypotheses, interventions, and health quality evaluation.


The program also contributes to the growth and development of team science culture created by the marriage of data-driven approaches with robust clinical translational research across the Commonwealth of Virginia.


The iTHRIV Scholars Program is a mentored, career development award over a two-year period.  A request for applications is released in the fall each year and requires an NIH-like submission process with study section review and assessment.  Finalists are interviewed in person; awards are announced in the spring, and awards begin on July 1st.  Attendance and participation in weekly curriculum and activities are a required part of the program and offers an opportunity for each cohort to develop a community of practice within their own group as well as with the other Scholar cohorts and greater iTHRIV community.
