GME is committed to creating an inclusive learning environment that supports the development of all residents and fellows and elimination of healthcare disparities that undermine the quality of patient care.
These aspirational goals can be accomplished through efforts by students, postgraduate trainees, faculty members, and staff throughout UB and its affiliated hospitals and clinics.
Projects must be designed and implementation begun by the end of calendar year 2021. Recipients will be expected to present work to the Graduate Medical Education Committee and Program Directors Advisory Committee. They are encouraged to also submit a poster for the annual Celebration of Scholarship.
Project submissions must include:
We are not accepting proposals for the Social Justice and Equity Award.
Information for the 2022 award will be posted when it becomes available.
Graduate Medical Education will provide up to five awards of $2,000 that will go directly to residents or fellows who design and begin implementation of projects that will support an inclusive, supportive learning environment or improve healthcare equity.
