Release Date: July 13, 2005

Issued by
National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), (http://www.niddk.nih.gov)
National Cancer Institute (NCI), (http://www.nci.nih.gov)

The Division of Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases (DKUHD) of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)and the Office of Centers, Training and Resources (OCTR) Cancer Training Branch of the National Cancer Institute are committed to the career development of clinically trained research scientists and recognize the importance of physicians in research. In an effort to accommodate the training needs of urologic surgeons, the NIDDK and NCI will allow highly motivated urologic surgeons to apply for K08 (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-00-003.html) grants, and the K23, (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-00-004.html) with a less than 75% effort. This is part of a pilot program to address the concerns of the urology community that urologic surgeons are unable to devote more than 50% of their time to research activities and still maintain their surgical skills. A minimum of 50% effort may be requested for the overall effort that will cover both career development and research activities. Salary will be pro-rated within the NIDDK and NCI caps accordingly.

Review Criteria

If requesting less than 75% effort on either a K08 or K23 application, the reasons for the reduced amount of effort must be clearly stated. The following additional review criteria will be applied:
