Apply now for a Residency/core competency innovation grant

Applications for 2015-2016 residency/core competency innovation grants are being accepted through Friday, May 15, 2015, 5pm CDT.  This schedule allows programs the entire academic year to complete projects.

Grants, up to $20,000, are meant to improve the six ACGME core competencies as they apply to orthopaedic surgery graduate medical education. Intended to encourage a program's creativity and innovative thinking, these grants support an enhanced educational experience and the formation of original projects. The six core competencies as defined by the ACGME are:

  • Patient care/surgical assessment methodology

  • Medical knowledge

  • Practice-based learning and improvement

  • Interpersonal and communication skills

  • Professionalism

  • Systems-based practice
