APCCMPD, CHEST and ATS Education Research Award

The APCCMPD is now accepting grant proposals from Fellows-in-Training, Junior Faculty within 5-years of program completion, Associate Program Directors and/or Program Directors, for research projects related to adult pulmonary and critical care graduate medical education.

Proposals may encompass any aspect of graduate medical education. Suggested topics, which are not meant to be exclusive, include: 

  • Identify and validate processes for assessing competency of trainees in pulmonary/critical care medicine.
  • Validate novel training methods or training outcomes in pulmonary/critical care medicine.
  • Identify methods and measures to allow translation of medical education into providing quality care.
  • Identify the relationship between organizational change and medical education and how it affects patient care.
  • Develop new educational methods using novel technologies.
  • Develop novel tools or approaches to facilitate GME and training program processes

The APCCMPD expects to award up to a total of $25,000 in Fiscal Year 2019 to support one or two projects. The number of awards is dependent on the number of high quality applications and their individual budget requirements; it is not the intent of the APCCMPD that the awards be equal in size. The awardee(s) will be recognized at the 2019 APCCMPD Annual Spring Conference, March 13-15, 2019, Albuquerque, NM.
