Macy and IMAP Issue RFA for Second Year of Joint Professionalism Initiative

New York, NY

The Institute on Medicine as a Profession (IMAP) and the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation are issuing a second request for applications for the joint Education and Training to Professionalism Initiative (ETPI).  IMAP and the Macy Foundation will give five awards annually to support faculty-directed educational programs that address one or several of the critical components of medical professionalism.  Grants will be provided for a two year period at $25,000 per year.

In promoting professionalism, IMAP and the Macy Foundation are looking less to classroom presentations and more to learning through the clinical experience. Although didactic lectures have a role, the program emphasizes the promotion of professionalism within practice settings.  Applicants must be faculty members at accredited medical schools, hospitals, or health care systems, and/or participating in approved residency programs.

Please download the Request for Applications for Year 2 of this initiative here.  Proposals are due December 12, 2011.  Information on 2011 grantees can be found here.  If you have any questions about the grant, please contact Leah Aronowsky, Education and Training Initiative Program Coordinator for IMAP, at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
