The American Medical Association selected eight award recipients to participate in its newly developed Reimagining Residency Initiative.
AMA’s $14.4 million award will fund eight projects from medical schools, residency programs and health systems that have a goal to improve residency training. Each project will receive $1.8 million over five years.
“After establishing a framework for creating the medical schools of the future, the AMA is now supporting innovation projects that will better align residency training with the evolving needs of patients and communities, as well as the workforce needs of the current and future health care system,” said AMA CEO and executive vice president Dr. James L. Madara. “Our goal is to ensure physicians are prepared to adapt, grow and thrive at every stage of their training and career. Better prepared physicians will deliver more effective and equitable health care.”
