Northeastern Group on Educational Affairs (NEGEA)

The NEGEA is one of four regional groups of the AAMC's Group on Educational Affairs (GEA). Our purpose is to promote excellence in the education of medical students, residents, and physicians through the professional development of medical educators. Our regional meetings provide a forum for exchanging ideas, learning new strategies, and developing plans that may facilitate your own work and implementation of the NEGEA mission.

Please plan to attend the next Annual Educational Retreat. We encourage and welcome your participation!

New Initiative: NEGEA Scholarly Projects

The NEGEA will offer educators in our region the opportunity to submit their work for designation as an “NEGEA Designated Scholarly Project.” This designation will provide the opportunity for medical educators working on designated projects to engage more deeply with the NEGEA and be offered ways to develop and promote their work. Successful applicants for this designation will be projects that include faculty from two or more institutions within the NEGEA and that focus on a topic within the scope of medical education (e.g., curriculum, teaching methods, leadership, etc.). Through this program, we hope to foster inter-institutional scholarly collaboration, to advance the NEGEA’s mission of fostering educational scholarship and to promote NEGEA work on the national level.

2013 NEGEA Call for Collaborative Research Grant Proposals

This call has now closed

The Northeast Group on Educational Affairs (NEGEA) supports and encourages scholarship in medical education. To help its members participate in opportunities that provide educational scholarship, the NEGEA provides funding to initiate new Medical Education Scholarship, Research and Evaluation (MESRE – formerly RIME) proposals. The NEGEA will provide up to two research grants for two years. The grant award may total up to $3000 for submissions involving one NEGEA institution and $5000 for submissions involving the collaboration of 2 or more institutions. The NEGEA also seeks to promote collaborative projects across institutions, and sections (UGME, GME, CME, and MESRE), and seeks to stimulate the development of a community of educational scholars. The results of these projects will be public and presented at a NEGEA regional meeting.

For more information and submission instructions, download the 2013 Call .
