Southern Group on Educational Affairs (SGEA)

The SGEA fosters excellence along the continuum of medical education—undergraduate medical education, graduate medical education, and continuing medical education—by providing a forum for discussing the concerns of the medical education profession, serving as a resource, and acting in an advisory capacity to the GEA and AAMC. This mission is accomplished through communication, cooperation and shared respect among its members.

To accomplish its mission, the SGEA will:

  • Enhance the professional development of medical educators
  • Advance research and understanding in medical education
  • Provide service to the profession, and
  • Practice evidence-based principles of medical education.

SGEA Collaborative Grants

2019 SGEA Call for Grant Proposals

SGEA Innovation in Medical Education Award

SGEA supports and encourages innovation in medical education. To recognize members who have developed an innovative approach to medical education and to support participation of SGEA members in activities that promote educational scholarship, the SGEA will provide one award of $5000 each year to recognize an outstanding innovation in medical education. Innovations that promote collaborative projects across institutions, the health professions, and sections (UGME, GME, CME, and MESRE) will be given extra consideration.

The call for proposals for the 2019 cycle is now closed.


SGEA supports and encourages scholarship in medical education. To help its members participate in opportunities that provide educational scholarship, the SGEA provides funding to initiate new Medical Education Scholarship, Research and Evaluation (MESRE) proposals. The SGEA will provide up to three research grants for two years. The grant award may total up to $5000 for submissions involving one institution and $7500 for submissions involving the collaboration of two or more institutions.  The SGEA 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.

For the September 2019 grant cycle, we are encouraging projects on current topics in medical education, such as (though not limited to): diversity, equity and inclusion; physician, resident, and student wellness; institutional/organizational change; career “transitions”; competency-based assessment (including EPAs and milestones); inter-professional education and practice (perhaps focused on opioid education; and team science.

The call for grants can be accessed here. Additional information is available here or you may contact the SGEA MESRE Section Chair, Elizabeth B. Bradley, Ph.D.

The call for proposals for the 2019 cycle is officially open. The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2019. Please review the grant proposal submission guidelines.
