Project proposals should focus on ways to improve the relevancy and effectiveness of Continuing Medical Education, enhancing the professional development of physicians and the interprofessional teams in which they work. A broad range of proposals are invited, but preference will be given to projects that target the following:
- Improved Delivery or Access to CME - for example, unique methods to increase collaborative learning (shared grand rounds with novel IT support), educational activities with affiliated or community physicians
- Clinical Relevance - for example, education targeted to improve quality care or to address patient safety concerns or public health priorities. Activities focused on helping physicians achieve recent medical licensing requirements; medical ethics, pain or symptom control, and human trafficking
- Educational Effectiveness - for example, projects which explore new methods to measure educational impact on patient care
- Encouraging Interprofessional Learning and Team Training - for example, developing activities that encourage collaborative team training in medical simulation
- Clinical Skill Enhancement - projects that improve technical and/or procedural skills, including observed evaluation and formative feedback to the learner
- Involvement of Physicians in Training in Educational Planning
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.
