The American Medical Association Accelerating Change in Medical Education Innovation Grant Program has awarded $1.5 million in grants since 2018.

These grants, which are issued to undergraduate and graduate medical education faculty, are designed to provide financial support to hasten the transformation of medical education and better position learners to succeed in our rapidly evolving health care system.

The competition is open to all medical educators. Principal/lead investigators must hold an active, individual membership in the American Medical Association.
