  • Call for Applications - 2017 Medical Education Development Fund

    Published Wed Mar 29th 2017

    SEAMO physicians interested in the opportunity to develop, upgrade or enhance their skills in medical education or medical education scholarship and research are invited to apply for the 2017 Medical Education Development Program (MEDP).

    The MEDP supports SEAMO's objective of building an academy of physician educational leaders and scholars with a critical mass sufficient to enable the continuous implementation of best principles and leading practices in medical education.  In 2017, $324,000 will be dedicated to the MEDP fund.

    All SEAMO-funded physicians are encouraged to apply for the program, which provides grants of up to $50,000 over a five-year period, for initiatives such as:

    • An advanced degree in medical education
    • A short-term sabbatical to train with internationally recognized experts
    • A training program (e.g. Harvard Macy)
    • A medical education leadership program (e.g. CLIME)
    The program does not fund attendance at educational meetings or School of Medicine faculty development workshops. 

    Past successful applicants have received funding to participate in the Program for Educators in Health Professions, to attend the Canadian Leadership Institute for Medical Education (CLIME) and to enrol in the Masters of Education/Medical Education programs.

    DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: April 28, 2017 at 2:00PM.
