Northeast 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!

2014-2015 NEGEA Innovation in Medical Education Award: Call for Submissions

Innovation in medical education award purpose

The NEGEA supports and encourages innovation in medical education.  An innovation can be the introduction or development of a new method, process, approach, or technological application that provides a solution to a problem in medical education.  To recognize faculty members in NEGEA-affiliated schools who have developed an innovative approach to medical education, the NEGEA will provide one award of $3,000 to recognize an outstanding innovation in medical education. This is an award rather than a grant and as such, the winner has discretion to apply the funds for continued improvement in medical education.   

Proposals are due February 1, 2015

2014 NEGEA Call for Collaborative Research Grant Proposals

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 three research grants for two years. The grant award may total up to $3,000 for submissions involving one NEGEA institution and $5,000 for submissions involving the collaboration of 2 or more institutions. NEGEA also seeks to promote collaborative projects across institutions, and sections (UGME, GME, CME/CEI, 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 2014 Call.

2014 NEGEA Award Winners

2014 NEGEA Excellence in Medical Education Awards 

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.
