RMPHEC Grantees

In 2003, seven medical schools became pilot RMPHEC sites through a competitive process. Although planned as a multi-year activity, funding beyond the first year was not available, and the pilot program was discontinued. The selected pilot sites were:

  • Mercer University School of Medicine
  • Morehouse School of Medicine
  • Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine
  • SUNY Upstate Medical University
  • Texas Tech School of Medicine
  • University of Kansas School of Medicine
  • University of New Mexico School of Medicine

In early 2006, AAMC and CDC embarked on a second phase of the RMPHEC project. A call for proposals was developed that requested that applicants "fully integrate population health into the medical school curriculum."

All LCME-accredited U.S. medical schools, including those that had participated in the pilot RMPHEC project, were eligible to compete for this opportunity. As in the pilot, medical schools were required to collaborate with public health practitioners at state or local public health agencies.

Applicants had a brief four-week deadline, but 47 schools submitted applications. More schools had expressed interest but could not meet the timetable. By May 2006, the following 11 schools were funded RMPHEC sites:

  • Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University
  • Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
  • Harvard Medical School
  • Mercer University School of Medicine
  • Southern Illinois University School of Medicine
  • Stanford University School of Medicine
  • University of California, Davis School of Medicine
  • University of Colorado School of Medicine
  • University of New Mexico School of Medicine
  • University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry
  • University of Vermont College of Medicine
