GEA National Research Grant Award


In its strong encouragement and support of research in medical education, the GEA seeks to fund research projects that address important problems or questions in medical education. Proposals that foster collaboration are strongly encouraged. This includes collaborations among GEA sections (UME, GME, CPD/CME), across GEA regions (CGEA, NEGEA, SGEA, WGEA) and/or proposals that engage multiple schools, professions or departments. High-quality research proposals on the following topics are strongly encouraged, but proposals related to other areas of research are also welcome:

  • Professional identity formation
  • Learning well-being or mistreatment
  • The learning environment
  • Faculty development
  • Training across the continuum of education
  • Inter-professional education
  • Competency-based education, EPAs, or milestones
  • Self-directed/self-regulated learning
