Become a Macy Faculty Scholar
The Macy Faculty Scholars Program is designed to identify and nurture the careers of educational innovators in medicine and nursing.
The Foundation is looking for nursing and medical school faculty who are committed to careers in health professional education, have served for more than five years on the faculty of the sponsoring school, are innovators, and have shown promise as future leaders.
On December 15, 2015 we held an informational webinar that explained the program in detail and included a question and answer session.
The deadline for submitting applications to the 2016 Macy Faculty Scholars Program is February 17, 2016 at 3 PM EST.
Each candidate must:
- Be a doctorally-prepared faculty member in good standing at the sponsoring school.
