The Department of Medicine (DoM) is committed to the growth of education scholarship through encouraging education research activities among our clinician-educators. As such, The DoM will offer two grants annually, each of up to $10,000 to support a research project in medical education. 

We want to be as transparent as possible with the allocation of these funds and invite you to visit some examples of previously funded projects by clicking here

Eligibility:
  • The PI (or research supervisor if the PI is a trainee) must be a full time member of the DoM, i.e., their primary academic appointment is with the DoM.
Criteria:
  • The research project should be on an education topic relevant to the DoM, or in an area related to education activities within the DoM.
  • At least one grant will be given to an emerging clinician educator if the grant is deemed eligible and acceptable
  • Including a trainee in the project will be considered a strength but is not a requirement (i.e. evidence of capacity building will be viewed favorably)
  • Grant is intended for project operating expenses, not funding for travel or investigator salary
  • The project findings will be disseminated through presentations and publication in health professions education journals. Evidence of potential impact will be assessed (i.e. likelihood of publication in high impact education journal will be a selection criterion).
  • Funding will only be released after IRB approval
  • A mid-year progress report and an end of project report is required
Application Process:

  1. Name and coordinates of the PI and co-investigators, and research supervisor if the PI is a trainee
