AMA: $10 Million for the Best Med School Ideas

Attention all medical schools: There’s $10 million up for grabs for the most innovative proposals to improve medical education.

The American Medical Association is “funding a competitive grant program open to U.S. medical schools that propose bold and innovative projects that support significant redesign of undergraduate medical education,” according to the AMA website.

The goals of the AMA’s program include:

“We can do better for our students and we can do better for our patients,” said Susan Skochelak, M.D., Group VP, Medical Education, American Medical Association. “And we need to make those changes happen now.”

But you have to act quickly.  The AMA is accepting letters of intent through February 15, 2013.  Full proposals are then due by May 15; and the winners will be announced this Summer.  Check out the AMA website for details.
