The Academy of Medical Educators fulfills its mission to advance the quantity and quality of research in medical education at the UVa School of Medicine by sponsoring an annual Medical Education Research Poster Session and an annual medical education research grant awards program.
Since 2004, the Small Grants Program has awarded $100,000 worth of medical education research grants each year. The grant awards are for up to two years in duration and carry funding up to $ 25,000/per year. Currently, only UME-related projects are being funded. The deadline for grant applications is usually around May 1st and typically 3-5 grant awards are made each year. A grant statistics summary page, including titles and abstracts of all past grant awards, is available.
The Academy’s Education Research Subcommittee sponsors an annual Medical Education Research Poster Session covering all aspects of UME, GME and CME. For descriptions and photos from past poster sessions and access to all poster abstracts, use the links in the right-hand column.
