The AMA Health Systems Science (HSS) Scholars Program is an initiative of the American Medical Association (AMA) Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium.

Successful applicants to the program will attend an in-person workshop, Dec. 8–9, at the AMA’s headquarters in Chicago. This workshop will focus on the implementation of health systems science curricula in undergraduate medical education or graduate medical education. Specifically, the program will provide an overview of how to design, implement and evaluate health systems science curriculum at participants’ local institutions. All applicants will be asked to submit a concrete project, which will serve as part of their focus during the workshop.

Applications now open

The AMA’s Health Systems Science Scholars Program invites all interested faculty who have significant responsibility for—or who anticipate having responsibility for—implementing and/or teaching topics related to health systems science to submit an application. Applicants may currently have minimal experience with health systems science. The deadline to submit is Aug. 29.

Additionally, program participants will engage with peers and national experts in health systems science who will serve as mentors over a year-long period.

Faculty from both consortium and non-consortium schools are welcome to apply. Applicants need to be nominated by their department chair or dean. We encourage early submissions as space is limited.

To submit, please follow this link.
