CME Innovation Grants
The UMMS OCPD is accepting proposals for grants to support innovations in CME and the professional development of physicians and health care teams in which they participate. This funding specifically fosters the development of educational tools and activities that support innovations in CME and the performance of UMHS faculty, community physicians, and other healthcare professional partners.
UMMS faculty of all ranks are invited to submit proposals for new CME activities or changes to existing/previous CME activities that promote innovative approaches to the content, delivery, impact, and assessment of continuing education:
- CME content - new topics that enhance clinical performance and professional development
- CME process - more effective and/or efficient delivery of content
- CME outcomes - demonstrated impact on learners, clinical practice, and/or patients
- CME assessment - evidence-based methods to assess the effectiveness of CME process and outcomes
Priority will be given to activities that seek to: 1) improve performance across UMHS mission components; 2) foster a culture of excellence and continuous improvement; and 3) increase engagement with UMHS alumni and/or UMHS physician partners.
Meritorious proposals will be funded up to $25,000. A maximum of two awards will be made to an individual faculty member within a grant cycle. Funding may be allocated to salaries and wages, fringe benefits, supplies and materials, and other relevant expenses.
2017 Application deadline: TBD
Full details will be announced soon.
