For those protocols using agents from a pharmaceutical company that are not FDA-approved for the disease under study, a letter of commitment from the collaborating company stating that drug will be supplied for the proposed trial or a copy of the correspondence with the company suggesting their likely support of the trial IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED. Priority will be given to applicants that have a clear letter of support that is uploaded with the application (preferably a letter of commitment, but at minimum, a letter of intent).

Comments from 2017 Workshop Participants:


"Amazing experience - the most educational and inspiring experience of my residency. Inspiring and brilliant community. Wonderful, kind PDG leaders that guided us throughout the process and helped optimize our study design. The gold standard course for learning about clinical trial design."

"This was the best training experience I ever had. Fantastic mentors and colleagues. I didn't think it was possible to learn so much in less than a week! Thank you all so much!!"

"This was a wonderful opportunity. I never imagine I could get this much done in a week - write a full protocol, get feedback to improve my design and write it again, meet this many people and enjoy the scenery and zip lining at Vail! What I learned here will stay with me for life."

"The conference was spectacular!! I learned a tremendous amount about clinical trial design, and I'm confident that I now have the foundation needed to move forward in my career."

"This is THE best workshop or conference among all that I have ever attended throughout my entire career. Faculties were truly motivating and open to any questions or feedback. Having an opportunity to talk to mentors and other faculties during the office hour or small group sessions changed my view of career development."

"This was one of the best experiences of my entire residency training and I would recommend this course to any young faculty member or trainee."
