Why EPIC??  EPIC is short for 'Educational Possibilities in Collaboration'.   

How do we think the EPIC Scholarship can help create 'Educational Possibilities in Collaboration'?

Attending conferences is one way that we connect with people doing good work, become exposed to the latest research, and have the opportunity to forge relationships that can turn into amazing collaborations and learning experiences.  The EPIC Scholarship is actually the result of attending conferences, which led to some pretty awesome collaboration and we want to help other make connections too. Thank you to Lorimer Moseley for collaborating with Entropy Physiotherapy to have the first 'Cabernet Conversation'  in 2015 to fund the first EPIC scholarship.

 Since 2015, we've had another EPIC night with Lorimer in 2016 and an EPIC night with Paul Hodges in March 2018.  The first EPIC night on the road will be happening in Victoria BC with Lorimer Moseley on May 3, 2018.

We have a few more EPIC ideas coming up, so stay tuned!  If you have ideas about who you'd like to see do an EPIC night, let Sarah know! 

As clinicians, we were once frustrated by the lack of evidence available to use in the clinic.  Little did we know that researchers and educators also share frustrations about getting what they know into the hands of clinicians.  The best advice we've ever received is 'show up and be a part of the conversation'.  

While that advice is simple and brilliant, it's not always easy.  This scholarship is easy:  You can use it to fill the gaps in your funding, whatever that may be.

That being said....  How can you apply to win the EPIC scholarship?

**Please note that if the EPIC fund has enough, we WILL fund more that one person!  The conferences do NOT have to be related to pain or pelvic issues.

Any questions?  Let us know! 


Congrats to our 2017 Winners!
