The AMA recently announced the launch of its Reimagining Residency initiative, which is a $15 million grant program created to support innovation in graduate medical education. This new program follows the widely successful Accelerating Change in Medical Education initiative, which awarded $12.5 million to 32 medical schools.


Set to take place over the course of five years, the Reimagining Residency program aims to spur innovation in current graduate medical education programs and associated organizations across the country. The AMA hopes resulting changes will improve residency training, preparing the young physician population for the evolving needs of the healthcare system. Additionally, the grant program aims to encourage improvements in curriculum, increase the readiness of residents for practice, and promote well-being throughout training.


Beginning early January 2019, interested programs and organizations will have the opportunity to submit Letters of Intent detailing their proposed projects and goals. All Letters will be due on February 1, 2019.
