ABIM invites residents to apply for research grants
The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) is offering 10 grants for residency research projects using ABIM Practice Improvement Modules (PIMs). The projects should evaluate the use of PIMs to engage trainees in modern quality improvement.
The small grants, up to $5,000 each, will be awarded to proposals that include a meaningful measurement and evaluation plan for assessing at least one area of the PIM. As a component of ABIM’s Maintenance of Certification Program, PIMs can be applied to residency projects that address practice-based learning and improvement and systems-based practice.
Residents, fellows, program directors and faculty are invited to submit proposals. Preference will be given to trainee-initiated proposals but all projects must have a faculty collaborator.
The proposals will be evaluated for research design and compliance, and then awarded on a rolling basis. Proposals should include details of the project, goals of the study, study design and methodology, a plan for monitoring outcomes and a budget.
No applications will be accepted after Nov. 1, 2006. Applications and more information are available online.
