K Club Program
The K Club Program is designed to help recipients of career development (K) awards attain their research goals. This program consists of a monthly seminar or interactive session focused on a subject relevant to the interests/research goals of recipients of K awards.
The purpose of the K Club is twofold: 1) to help support the transition of K recipients to independent funding (eg R-level award) and 2) to provide a forum for recipients of K awards to meet their colleagues in other departments.
The K Club was founded in 2014 by Associate Deans Wendy Sanders, Director of the Research Career Development Program and Dr. Mary-Claire Roghmann, MD, MPH, Director of the K30 educational program. The K Club includes approximately 50 junior faculty/senior fellows from the School of Medicine and meets for 1-hour a month.
