Invites medical schools to submit proposals for bold, innovative projects to transform medical education
"Rapid changes in health care require a transformation in the way we train future physicians," said AMA President Jeremy A. Lazarus, M.D. "The AMA is deeply committed to redesigning undergraduate medical education to prepare the medical students of today for the health care of tomorrow."
Across the continuum of medical education, the gap between how physicians are trained and the future needs of health care continues to widen. The AMA is seeking to attract and support bold, rigorously evaluated innovations that align medical student training with the evolving needs of patients, communities and the changing health care environment.
As part of the "Accelerating Change in Medical Education" initiative, the AMA will provide $10 million over the next five years to fund 8-10 projects that support a significant redesign of undergraduate medical education. Interested medical schools must submit brief proposal ideas by February 15.

"In keeping with the AMA's historic leadership in all levels of physician education, we are excited to continue our work to improve medical education for patients and physicians," said Dr. Lazarus. "We hope to find and support proposals to develop innovative new education models that can be duplicated in medical schools across the country."
From the initial pool of proposals, the AMA will invite a select group of medical schools to submit a full proposal by May 15 and will conduct a thorough review of all materials before announcing the selected schools at its Annual meeting in June 2013.
