Proposals for pre-graduate stipends are invited. Two calls a year are anticipated, see above for expected dates and deadlines.
“The patient first” is the underlying principle of OUH’s ambition in creating value for our patients. To offer the best treatment, retain and attract the best qualified staff to the benefit of patients, it is the ambition of OUH to strengthen research at the hospital. As one of several initiatives to reach this objective, OUH has set aside funding for pre-graduate stipends.
Each applicant may apply for a maximum amount of DKK 60,000 for a total of six months from the OUH Fund for Pre-graduate Stipends.
Annually, a maximum of 16 stipends are available from the OUH Fund for Pre-graduate Stipends.
All disciplines of research may apply, including clinical patient related research, research of epidemiology, experimental laboratory research and Health Services research.
Eligible applicants are primarily pre-graduate medical students. However, students from other disciplines doing a research year at OUH may also apply. The application must be submitted by the pre-graduate student. However, please note that the pre-graduate student must be supervised in drawing up the application and that the supervisor must approve the application prior to submission.
The pre-graduate student must play a significant role in the proposed research activity and the tasks and motivation of the pre-graduate student must be clearly described in the application.
Only projects which have already obtained approval from the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) before the application deadline are eligible.
Applications from the OUH Fund for pre-graduate stipends can only be granted if financial support has been applied for from at least two other funds (salary and/or running costs).
The main part of the project must be carried out at Odense University Hospital or Svendborg Hospital.
Grants from the OUH Fund for Pre-graduate Stipends must be reimbursed if you receive funding for salary from elsewhere. It will not be possible to receive funding from both OUH and SDU for a pre-graduate stipend.
The OUH Research Support offers instructions on how to draw up a budget. If you request assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are being assessed according to the following criteria:
You must submit your application via the electronic application system, http://efond.dk/ouh/. Please read and comply with the instructions given in efond and enclose the following appendices in PDF format:
In the budget section in efond (step 3), please state which year a possible grant from the OUH pre-graduate Fund is to be applied:
If a possible grant is to be divided between two years, please indicate number of months for each year..
In efond, do not forget to state which other Funds financial support has been applied for and for which budget headings.
Your application must be written in English. However, please note that the layman’s summary and the section regarding involvement of patients must be written in Danish.
You will receive a confirmation by email from “efond” if your application is submitted correctly (please check your spam filter if you do not receive an email).
The submitted applications will be reviewed and prioritised by the committee of the OUH Fund for Pre-graduate Stipends at an assessment meeting.
All applicants will receive notice of the outcome of the application approximately one week after the assessment meeting.
Patients are members of the assessment committee and will be reviewing the applications with other members of the committee. The primary focus of the patients is on the layman’s description and description of patient involvement, why these parts must be understandable to a non-specialist.
Consequently, the layman’s summary in Danish should:
Please note that involvement of patients in the project does not equal treatment of patients.
Involving patients and relatives in the research process can help to ensure that the research focuses on the most important topics and issues from a patient perspective. Involvement by patients and relatives should be enhanced where it contributes the most value for the individual project and thus the value of the project to patients and society as a whole.
It is important to describe considerations about patient and relative involvement in the application. The involvement can take place throughout the entire research process – from the planning of the project to dissemination of the results that are generated. The main purpose of health research is obtaining results that will be beneficial for patients.
Examples of how and when patients and relatives can be involved:
