The goal of the five-year, $15-million Reimagining Residency grant program is to transform residency training to best address the workforce needs of our current and future health care system. It will support innovations that provide a meaningful and safe transition from UME to GME, establish new curricular content and experiences to enhance readiness for practice, and promote well-being in training.
Apply for funding; submit a proposal
Funding will be provided to U.S. medical schools, GME programs, GME sponsoring institutions, health systems and other organizations associated with GME to support bold and innovative projects that promote systemic change in graduate medical education.
Proposals must be submitted online via the proposal website.
Review the RFP process
Interested applicants must submit a Letter of Intent (required; maximum five pages) by Feb. 1, 2019. The AMA will then invite a smaller group of applicants to submit full proposals. (A separate set of instructions for full proposals will be issued at that time.) The AMA will conduct a thorough review of all Letters of Intent and full proposals and announce the selected applicants by June 10, 2019.
Make sure to review the RFP and grant dates schedule before submitting your proposal on the proposal website.

Accelerating Change in Medical Education
The AMA’s new $15 million grant program to support GME innovation follows the success of the Accelerating Change in Medical Education initiative that has created a community of innovation aimed at creating the medical schools of the future.
The success of that initiative (involving $12.5 million in grants awarded to 32 medical schools and impacting 19,000 medical students, who will one day care for 33 million patients each year) prompted the AMA to now reimagine residency training.
