The Department of Family Medicine Academic and Leadership Support Fund has been set up as a 5-year pilot program. A total of $250,000 has been set aside for this pilot ($50,000 per year for five years). The fund is intended to recognize and support physicians who are involved in the training of our Family Medicine residents and medical students by providing them with an opportunity to further their continued education and/or enhance their leadership skills in as much as it relates to their academic role within the Department.
Specifically, this newly created fund will allow the Department to support faculty seeking postgraduate educational degrees (e.g., Master of Education) or leadership courses that will enrich our academic mission and allow for more effective succession planning.
To be eligible for either fund, applicants must be a member of the Department of Family Medicine with an academic appointment for at least two years. Faculty members must also be at the academic rank of Assistant Professor.
