To promote innovation in graduate medical education, the American Medical Association will be awarding $15 million in grant funding over 5 years to organizations associated with GME, including medical schools, residency programs and health systems. The Reimagining Residency Initiative will support ideas and programs that “provide meaningful and safe transitions from undergraduate medical education (UME) to graduate medical education (GME),” according to the AMA.
Grants will also support efforts to redevelop graduate medical education curricula and promote resident well-being. Candidates for grant funding include medical schools, GME programs, specialty societies, health systems and GME sponsors. The goal is to transform residency training to better address current and long-term workforce needs within health care.
A Request for Proposals (RFP) will be distributed on Jan. 3, 2019, and prospective applicants are required to submit a Letter of Intent outlining the details of their proposed project.
