The AMA’s new $15 million grant program to support GME innovation will build on 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) has prompted the AMA to now reimagine residency training.

Reimagining Residency initiative

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.

Funding opportunity

In early January 2019 the AMA will post a Request for Proposals for the Reimagining Residency initiative. Applicants will be solicited from U.S. medical schools, GME programs, GME sponsoring institutions, health systems and other organizations associated with GME. Funding will support bold and innovative projects that promote systemic change in graduate medical education.

Important grant dates 

Interested parties will be required to submit Letters of Intent describing the goals and scope of their proposed project. Here are important dates and activities.
