Short-term grant for health professions education (HPE) research.

FY19 Results

Congratulations to the recipients of the FY19 NHG-HOMER Grant!

The primary goal of the NHG-HOMER grant is to support researchers in designing and developing health professions education research. Our awardees each year represent a diverse group of researchers with projects of high potential, who strive towards better educational and training outcomes for the healthcare professions.

This year we received applications from our NHG institutions proposing interesting and worthwhile health professions education research. It was encouraging that we also received applications from departments that have not applied for the grant before. After a rigorous decision-making process guided by the inputs of reviewers, the grant committee short-listed applicants to present their proposals at a Pitch session attended by experienced researchers who provided feedback to improve the applicants' proposals.

We greatly appreciate the expertise and service rendered by our reviewers, who generously devoted their time to helping our applicants improve their proposals.  Thank you to all FY19 applicants for the hard work and effort put into their grant applications, and we hope that the interest in health professions education research at NHG will continue to flourish in future years. 

We are pleased to announce the ten proposals (6 Category A, 4 Category B) that have been awarded up to $10,000 in funding.
