Apgar Grants

The Virginia Apgar Academy of Medical Educators is pleased to announce that we will again, be awarding Apgar Grants ($5000 each *) to P&S faculty members to fund projects that seek to implement new ways of teaching the complex skill set necessary to advance health care. This could include, but not be limited to, curricular innovations, new approaches to assessment, faculty development projects, and evaluation of new pedagogical methodologies.

The scope of the project should be such that it would be covered primarily by this grant, and that it could be completed by this academic year. Selection will be a competitive process. Impact on teaching (at any level) at CUMC will be a major consideration in the selection process. Recipients will be asked to present a poster outlining the project in the spring of 2019.

Applications are due by July 1, 2018- NO EXCEPTIONS.

Please send completed applications to Ms. Wanda O'Connell at wo2145@cumc.columbia.edu.

*Note that funds from Apgar grants may NOT be used to offset the faculty member’s salary. Funds may be used for items such as statistical support, equipment, software, and travel to present this work at meetings.

Application Deadline

The Apgar Grant Application Deadline is July 1, 2018.
