The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) seeks to support health professions schools and programs in medicine, pharmacy, and nursing in kickstarting efforts to advance educational practices and explore the role of health professions educators in addressing health misinformation and improving trust with the patients and communities they serve. The AAMC, through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is engaged in a strategic initiative to increase confidence in COVID-19 vaccines and address medical misinformation and mistrust through health professions education. With support from the CDC, we will award several cost-reimbursable curricular innovations grants ranging from $25,000-$35,000 each to support the initial development of competency-based, interprofessional strategies for preparing learners to address health misinformation and the integration of these strategies into new or existing curricula.
The application submission window for this grant program has closed. Please check back for an upcoming announcement about the awardees.
