Congratulations to Grant Recipients for the Innovations Funding for Education 2016!

The Haile T. Debas Academy of Medical Educators, in collaboration with the UCSF Program in Interprofessional Education and the UCSF Library and Center for Knowledge Management, is pleased to announce the new Education Innovations Funding awards for the 2016-2017 academic year.  These intramural grants are expected to make significant contributions to educational excellence at UCSF. Working collaboratively to integrate programs and resources has expanded our capacity to provide the campus community with more efficient and effective support that leverages creative partnerships, raises the visibility of scholarly work in education, and reaches successfully across traditional domains in education.

Our collaboration of three UCSF programs that fund education innovations addressed a range of priorities in education of students and trainees at UCSF.  The call resulted in an unprecedented crop of strong proposals.  Thus, we sought and identified additional funding partners including the Department of Medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General and Tideswell™ at UCSF.  Responsibility for reviewing the submissions was shared within the collaboration.
