Résultats du concours 2013 - 2014 - Opération AVC 12

La fondation des maladies du cœur et de l’AVC du Canada et le Réseau canadien contre les accidents cérébrovasculaires ont le plaisir d'annoncer les résultats de l'initiative de l'Opération AVC 12.

Cette initiative stratégique se concentre sur le développement de la capacité dans les thèmes ultérieurs de la recherche sur les AVC (c’est-à-dire, recherche clinique, sur les services et politiques de santé et sur la santé des populations) et le soutien à la formation en recherche des professionnels de la santé (p. ex., infirmières, ergothérapeutes, pharmaciens, physiothérapeutes et orthophonistes).

La liste préliminaire de l'initiative de l'Opération AVC 12 se trouve ci-dessous. Veuillez ne pas téléphoner au bureau de la FMC pour connaître cette information. Chaque candidat reçevra une lettre faisant état des résultats des concours de cette année. L'offre de bourse constituera le document officiel.
