Apply Now: Advanced Training Institute on Health Behavior Theory

The NIDCR is pleased to join with the behavioral and social sciences communities at the NIH to support an intensive summer workshop called the Advanced Training Institute on Health Behavior Theory (ATI). The ATI is an intensive, 7-day workshop for early career investigators that will be held July 14 - July 21, 2012, in Madison, Wisconsin.  The objectives of the workshop are to allow approximately 30 attendees to extend their understanding of the assumptions underlying major types of health behavior theories, to explore how theories are tested and improved, and to examine how to use theories appropriately in designing interventions for behavioral risk factor modification. The workshop is relevant to researchers studying the behavioral or social aspects of dental, oral and craniofacial health.  

Applicants from all disciplines are welcome to apply.  Dentist-scientists, physicians and behavioral scientists focusing on oral health were well-represented at the 2010 workshop.  Applicants must have received a doctoral degree or equivalent by the beginning of the course, and have completed at least one graduate-level course in the behavioral sciences and one graduate-level course in statistics. Participants must be U.S. citizens. There will be a $500 meeting cost to participate in the institute.  Travel, meals, and lodging will be provided. Applications are due by February 1, 2012. 

More information, the application, and comments from previous participants are available at:
