  25. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course:
  26. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service? The nature of the learning tasks and the student writing requirements are better met by having more time between presentations and submission of writing assignments, so the course is being changed from two credits in the Fall semester for this course to one credit in the Fall and one credit in the Spring, which will be submitted as a new course for Grantsmanship III.
  27. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?
  28. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)
  29. Objectives: The course objectives are to: 1. Identify grant writing pitfalls and successful grant writing techniques. 2. Examine the ethical considerations when writing grant proposals. 3. Describe effective post award grant management techniques. 5. Create a career development or research grant proposal that addresses a clinical/ translational patient-oriented research question of interest to submit to the National Institutes of Health and/or other appropriate granting organization.

They will address the ethical considerations and requirements necessary to the conduct of human subjects research. They will be able to delineate the techniques required for effective post award grant management and will have the first sections drafted for a career development or research grant application to be completed for submission to the NIH and/or other appropriate granting organzation by the end of the next semester's final course in the sequence on Grantsmanship.
