The primary purpose of the AHRQ Mentored Research Scientist Research Career Development Awards (K01) program is to prepare qualified individuals for careers that have a significant impact on the quality, safety, efficiency, equity, and effectiveness of health care for all Americans.  This program represents an AHRQ program to provide support and “protected time” to individuals with a research doctoral degree for an intensive, supervised research career development experience in health services research.  The K01 award can be used both by individuals who propose to newly embark in heath services research training and those who had a hiatus in their research careers because of illness or family circumstances.  The K01 award is also available to promote research workforce diversity by providing enhanced research career development opportunities.
