Our Grantees

Across the Foundation’s priority areas, our grantees are working to improve the health of the public through innovative research and programs.  The Foundation awards up to 40 grants on a rotating schedule each year.

Graduate Medical Education Innovation Conference

Theme: New Models for Clinical Education

Institution: Partners HealthCare System

Grant Type: Board Grant

Award Amount: $50,000

Grant Awarded: October 2015

Principal Investigator: Debra Weinstein, MD

The conference will highlight innovations in GME that may be broadly applicable, and which will help GME to better address the changing health needs of the population and to cultivate the physician competencies needed to provide effective, high-value care in the 21st century. This conference will aim to strengthen ties between GME leaders and educators across the region in order to facilitate mentoring relationships and collaboration in future research and reform efforts. Finally, the conference plans to gather input regarding the facilitators and barriers to GME innovation, along with ideas for large-scale research and demonstration projects that can help transform isolated “best practices” into standard educational practice.

This conference is one of a series of conferences on regional innovations in graduate medical education.
