National Clinician Scholars Program (NCSP) Fellow Jasmine Travers, PhD, AGPCNP-C, RN, CCRN, recently won a Career Development award from the Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program.

“The timing of this award is impeccable as I will be able to hit the ground running towards identifying best models of long-care for older adults when I transition to faculty next July 2020,” said Travers. “In addition to all of those involved in the selection process, I am very grateful for all of the support and mentorship that I received from the NCSP, the Yale community, and my internal and external mentors, colleagues, and peers.”

Per their website, The Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program supported by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, offers four-year postdoctoral research awards to historically disadvantaged physicians, dentists, and nurses who are committed to developing careers in academic medicine and to serving as role models for students and faculty of similar background. This program supports the development of faculty in order to enhance their influence as leaders, researchers, and advisers to support a Culture of Health and provides salary and research support to the awardees for the four years.

“We are so excited that Dr. Travers has been recognized with this important award to further her work understanding and improving equity in long-term care in our aging population. It’s such an important topic and she is exactly the right investigator to tackle it - diligent, creative, collaborative, and curious. We can’t wait to see what she will do next!” said Cary Gross, MD, director of the NCSP at Yale.

The NCSP at Yale is an interprofessional fellowship program designed to prepare a select group of future clinician leaders to improve health and health care in the U.S. through scholarship and action at the national, state, and local levels.
