Western Group on Educational Affairs (WGEA)

The WGEA is one of four regional groups of the AAMC Group on Educational Affairs (GEA). We strive to promote excellence in the continuum of medical education by fostering the professional development of medical educators and advancing research in medical education. Annual meetings provide opportunities to share ideas and resources and report research among its members.

To become a member of the WGEA, please complete this membership application.


Call for Mini-Grant Proposals Now Open

The WGEA seeks to promote scholarship in medical education and advance the community of scholarship within the Western region. To that end, funds are available for investigators via a mini-grant program. Investigators can request up to $5,000 to initiate a new study or up to $1,000 for completing an ongoing study.

• The Principle Investigator must be a faculty member at a WGEA member school
• Applicants may submit only one proposal per cycle and may not be an author on any other proposal currently receiving WGEA and national GEA funding
• Applicants may not be current members of the WGEA executive committee

Priority will be given to multi-institutional studies that will enhance the community of scholars in the Western region.
Please review the full call  for further information
