Grants & You Winter 2021-22: News & Updates

American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM)

AACOM Medical Education & Institutional Research Grants - Due Feb. 28

The AACOM Research Grants program funds medical education and institutional research awards to qualified applicants. Institutional research is a broad category of work done at/across colleges to inform decision-making and planning. Topics related to workforce issues (e.g., implications of expansion of osteopathic medical colleges, branch campuses, additional teaching sites, and class sizes) are of increasing interest. Grants can support a pilot study or serve as the basis for seeking matching funds at individual institutions; however, priority will be given to projects providing potential for inter-institutional collaboration. Proposals with strategies for continuing or sustaining the project/activity post-grant will also be given preference. Themes of interest include (but are not limited to): osteopathic selection science; healthiest workforce; qualified applicants; trainee readiness; diversity in OME and culturally competent workforce; data driven decision making; GME programs and graduate level training; and osteopathic representation, voice, and influence.

Applicant Resources: AACOM provides a 10-min video to guide applicants on constructing a proper research grant proposal, including a helpful guide to determining if the project you have in mind qualifies as a research study vs programmatic evaluation. Projects that fail to extend beyond programmatic evaluation do not qualify as a research project and will not be funded. Before drafting a proposal, interested applicants are strongly encouraged to review AACOM’s grant reviewer rubric for valuable insights into how proposals will be scored.

SOMA, KCOM, and Still OPTI faculty who are interested in applying are encouraged to notify ATSU Sponsored Programs  immediately to coordinate assistance with the application process.
