Grants Available For Medical Teaching Innovations

Medical_grantsThe American Medical Association is making grant money available to help you and your university prepare future physicians for a rapidly changing health care system. The funds come through a new program designed to stimulate research and innovations in health care.

But act quickly. The deadline to submit proposals is 11:59 pm (CT) April 21.

Through its Accelerating Change in Medical Education initiative, the AMA is supporting innovative projects that show a direct and measurable impact on medical teaching.

One-year grants of up to $10,000 for individuals and small groups, or up to $30,000 for larger collaborative projects, will be available beginning July 1. 

The competition is open to all medical educators. Principal/lead investigators must hold an active, individual membership in the AMA.

Funding priorities will go to initiatives that address: 

  • Innovations in curriculum, faculty development, or new assessment tools;
  • Coaching in medical education;
  • The learning environment; and
  • Learner well-being. 

The AMA’s website has complete application guidelines, as well as an electronic submission form. You can also email questions to changemeded[at]ama-assn[dot]org.
