GEA National Grant Award
The GEA seeks to promote grant proposals that foster collaborations among the GEA sections (UGME, GME, CEI and MESRE) and/or regions (CGEA, NEGEA, SGEA and WGEA) as well schools, professions, and/or departments within an institution. The GEA MESRE (Medical Education, Scholarship, Research and Evaluation) section has reviewed and discussed recent publications regarding the lack of funding opportunities in medical education. Readily available funding sources are needed to advance the field of medical education. The aim of this national call for educational research grant proposals focuses on addressing innovative advancements in medical education scholarship, research, and evaluation and developing communities of educational scholars. Proposals on the following topics are encouraged but proposals related to other areas of research are welcome:
• Innovations in faculty development
• Professional identify formation
• Student / resident wellbeing, mistreatment; issues related to the learning environment
• Training across the continuum of education
• Inter-professional education.
• Curricular innovations, such as competency-based education, “entrustable professional activities,” milestones, self-directed learning, and creative approaches to delivery of education
