The NHG-HOMER Grant was established in 2011 to encourage the pursuit of research in the field of health professions education. HOMER hopes that the grant will boost user inspired research, strengthen clinical practice and ultimately, improve patient outcomes. To date, we have awarded grants to 93 research teams in 10 institutions within NHG. The funding paved the way for multi-institutional collaborations across different specialties and levels of seniority, reinforcing interprofessional collaboration, as well as teaching and learning.
The reviewer plays three important roles in HOMER Grant: ensuring quality in research and consequently, meritorious provision of funds, and of educating researchers. This year's HOMER Grant Outstanding Reviewer Awardees Dr Preman Rajalingam, Dr Ivan Woo, and Ms Lee Sin Yi tell us more in the Sep/Oct 2019 issue of LearniNHG.
