The ABIM Foundation, in partnership with the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS), recently announced a new grant program to support physicians who are working to advance medical professionalism in their practice.
The Professionalism Challenge program will fund up to four projects of $25,000 over a two-year period. Projects will be led by practicing physicians who propose a solution to an obstacle that is keeping them from fulfilling the principles and professional commitments defined in Medical Professionalism in the New Millennium: A Physician Charter.
Physicians whose primary professional activity is providing patient care are encouraged to apply. More information about the program, including proposal requirements, can be found in the full request for proposal (RFP). Grant applications are due January 19, 2016.
