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.
2015 WGEA Mini-Grant Initiative
The WGEA is providing a funding opportunity to both experienced and new investigators in the area of medical education research. This small grants program is meant to promote medical education research within the Western region. WGEA has made a total of $12,000 available. Investigators can request up to $5,000 to initiate a new study. A maximum of $1,000 are granted to investigators needing funds to complete ongoing projects (“finishing grants”). Deadline for submissions is June 22, 2015. For more information, please download the above document or contact Cha-Chi Fung, Ph.D., at email@example.com.
