Effective Research Execution (ERE)

The ERE program is an opportunity to enhance the effectiveness of your junior faculty members in executing their research programs.  In conjunction with Olin Business School two programs have been implemented and both were well received by participants.  We hope you will encourage your junior faculty researchers to consider enrolling in this program and will sponsor their participation.

Effective Research Execution (ERE) introduces the fundamental business concepts of strategy, execution and leadership to physicians and scientists at the WUSM.  The course comprises three sections that develop frameworks for understanding and applying competitive advantage, operational excellence and managing organizational dynamics directly to the pursuit of grants, the managing of research programs, as well as the building and influencing of key stakeholders.  The course is designed to accelerate and enhance faculty careers at the medical school.  The program consists of six half-day sessions held in the Eric P. Newman Education Center (EPNEC) on the Washington University Medical Campus.

The program information and application is attached to this message.  The deadline for applications is December 10, 2018
