Awards, Grants & Opportunities
The AMA-RFS and AMA Foundation offer grants to help fund projects and activities that better our communities, promote leadership development and reinforce AMA policy.
Jordan Fieldman, MD, Award
Deadline: Not accepting applications until Spring 2014
The Jordan Fieldman, MD, Award is presented annually by the AMA-RFS and AMA Foundation to two residents or fellows who have shown a strong interest and leadership in advocacy issues. The award covers resident travel to the Annual or Interim Meeting and necessary expenses while attending the meetings. This is a great opportunity to become involved for the first time in the AMA-RFS and its advocacy and educational efforts.
RFS Legislative Awareness Internship
The RFS, in conjunction with the Washington, DC office of the American Medical Association, is sponsoring a two-week legislative internship program. Two residents and/or fellows will be selected. Time frame for this internship can be negotiated with the AMA DC office, but it cannot be served in August during the Summer Recess of Congress.
The program will afford residents and fellows the unique opportunity to participate in the political process of organized medicine at the national level. Applicants must be members of the AMA. Each resident or fellow will receive a $1,000 stipend to help defray program-related expenses (e.g., airfare, hotel, cabs); all other expenses are the responsibility of the resident or fellow. The selected resident or fellow is also responsible for securing his or her own housing accommodations.
