Changes to Budget Load Process for Industry Sponsored Clinical Trials
First Published 10/16/2014

Industry Sponsored Trials will no longer have fifty percent of the total budget front

loaded at the initiation of a trial.

The initial load will include secured earnings per the Clinical Trial Agreement. These fees

include but are not always limited to: administrative startup fees, IDS (pharmacy) set up

fees, additional training fees, archiving, and long term storage fees.

OCR will increase the budget load once 25% of the contracted patients are enrolled –

the full per patient amount for each of the enrolled subjects will be loaded. The study

financial account will continue to be increased in 25% increments.

Screen failures are variable and will be loaded based upon contractual terms.

OCR and Post Award staff will communicate throughout the life of the trial to ensure

budgets are accurately loaded.

Project set up will allow salaries to be charged to these projects, creating an initial

negative balance until subjects are accrued.

Any questions or concerns regarding this new process should be directed to the Office

of Clinical Research.

**RURAL & UNDERSERVED TRAVEL AWARDS FOR SOM4 MEDICAL STUDENTS**
First Published 10/27/2014

Rural and Underserved Travel Awards for SOM4 Medical Students

Academic Year 2014-15

Medical students are often interested in spending time in rural and underserved areas, and have the opportunity to schedule such rotations as Elective Rotations or for an Ambulatory Community Selective.  Cost of housing and travel for these rotations can be a deterrent.

Support will be made available of funds up to $1,000.00 for students who must provide their own housing and transportation to rural or underserved areas for these rotations.  Students will need to show receipts documenting that funds were spent for housing in those communities.  Support can also be applied to the cost of a single round-trip to the underserved or rural community.

During the 2014 school year, interested students can apply to the John P. McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine for support.  A letter must be sent by email indicating the following:

  1. Name of Student:
  2. Course desired or previously completed:
  3. Name of hospital or clinic:
  4. Location (town or city, county):
  5. What about this location makes it rural or underserved?  Is it designated at http://www.hrsa.gov/shortage/find.htmlas meeting criteria?
  6. Amount of support requested (budgeted amount for a rotation in the future, or actual amount for a completed rotation)
  7. Actual cost of housing can be covered
  8. Mileage to and from the community can be covered at UTMB state rate (.56¢/mile)

A 300-500-word essay must be submitted electronically to Rosemary Lindley (mcacadem@utmb.edu) following the rotation.  The essay should describe the experience, and indicate how the rotation influenced the student’s personal and academic goals, as well as any changes made in the perception of patient autonomy or the doctor-patient relationship.  Pictures can be included.  Original receipts for housing and request for mileage reimbursement at the UTMB state rate must be submitted to the McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine, 8thfloor Rebecca Sealy, Rt. 0162.

Two awards will be given during each half of the Academic Year.  Students will be reimbursed after the rotation up to $1,000.00 when essay, receipts and mileage are submitted.

Application for students requesting support in Periods 1-6 and Period 13: Nov. 7th

Notification of Award: Nov 15th

Deadline for rotations Periods 7-12: March 31st

Notification of Award: April 15th
