Propose a project

  1. Select a topic,
  2. Identify the research problem, and
  3. State a clear research question.
  4. Then write the proposal. Writing the proposal will help you clarify the practical considerations of the project.

The SNO Division of Family Practice will hear proposals and consider funding on a case by case basis. Funding will be considered by the board at monthly board meetings. Please contact Brett Poulin or Tracey Kirkman if you are interested in a research proposal.

For research proposals for the SNO board or for other organizations, the structure will be similar. For the SNO board, we propose a short proposal of one to three pages.

For research proposals in BC, consider applying for Facility Engagement funding at your local hospital if this is available. This has been established in Vernon. Please contact Dr. Poulin or Dr. Hwang for questions.
