Accelerating Change in Medical Education Request for Proposal
Preparing medical students of today for health care tomorrow
In early 2013 the AMA will issue a Request for Proposal (RFP). This RFP will be open to U.S.-accredited medical schools seeking funding to support innovations that align with the AMA's initiative to accelerate change in undergraduate medical education. The program's goal is to close the gap between the education of medical students and the needs of patients in an evolving health care system. Submissions may focus on core areas, such as competency-based assessment, systems-based thinking and professionalism in the learning environment.
The AMA will establish partnerships with selected schools and form a consortium to develop innovations and structural changes that support new, flexible and outcomes-based education. This process seeks to promote dissemination and adoption of successful models for undergraduate medical education. More detailed information, including criteria, grant funding and submission instructions, will be available early January 2013.
