The Central Group on Educational Affairs (CGEA) Collaborative Grant promotes scholarship in medical education and advances the community of scholarship within the Central region. Priority is given to multi-institutional projects that foster collaborations among UGME, GME, CEI, and MESRE members. Consistent with the requirements of scholarship, the results of these projects must be made public, available for peer review, and available for others to build upon. Call for Proposals
