Awards & Grants
Innovative Grant Program
The GME office is currently soliciting Letters of Intent for its 2011 Innovation in Graduate Medical Education Awards Program. Letters should be approximately one page in length and should put forth ideas related to innovative techniques in graduate medical education, especially those which explore methods designed to
- Fulfill criteria for the ACGME Outcomes Project
- Utilize milestones in the evaluations of GME Trainees
Letters will be reviewed by a selection committee, who will then invite full applications for superior proposals.
If invited to submit, full applications should be no more than 5 pages in length and must include expected outcomes, method of evaluation, personnel needs and budget. Grants will not exceed two years or $50,000 ($25,000/year). If a one year grant is awarded, a final abstract and presentation of data will be scheduled for the end of the year. If a two year grant is awarded, a progress report will be due at the end of the first year, and a final abstract and presentation of data will be scheduled for the end of the second year. All winners are expected to present their data at the Annual Graduate Medical Education Research Seminar.
2011 Time Table:
August 12 - Call for letters of intent
September 12 - Letters of intent due
October 1 - Invitations for full proposal
November 30 - Applications for full proposal due
December 20 - Notification of decision
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Please submit letters of intent to Diane Farineau in the Graduate Medical Education Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Each year we acknowledge the educational contribution of our Housestaff by providing teaching awards for residents and fellows. These awards are a very important part of our effort to enhance the quality of our training programs and to recognize excellence in our trainees.
Traditionally, the award process has been initiated by
nominations from students. The Mulholland Society polls the
3rd and 4th year classes for names of housesaff
who have been outstanding teachers or have been particularly helpful to
them in their development as clinicians.
Nominations due in January
Portfolios due in February
Awards presented in April and May
