Macy Faculty Scholars
The Macy Faculty Scholars program is designed to identify and nurture the careers of educational innovators in medicine and nursing.
About the Program
The Macy Faculty Scholars program – the first of its kind – launched in December 2010. The program aims to accelerate needed reforms in health professions education to accommodate the dramatic changes occurring in medical practice and health care delivery.

Under the program, the Foundation will select five faculty leaders each year. Each Scholar will receive salary support up to $100,000 per year over two years. Scholars must be nominated by the Dean of their institutions, who must commit to protecting at least 50 percent of the Scholars’ time to pursue education reform projects at their institution. Each school may nominate only one candidate each year, and will be expected to provide a senior faculty member to mentor the Scholar.
The Foundation will support educational change in each Scholar’s institution and develop a national network for the Scholars, who will receive career advice from a National Advisory Committee and participate in an Annual Meeting for the program.
