Back to Bedside


Residents and Fellows: Foster Meaning in your Learning Environment

The most important work of physicians is engaging in meaningful patient care. The Back to Bedside initiative is designed to empower residents and fellows to develop transformative projects that foster meaning and joy in work and allow them to engage on a deeper level with what is at the heart of medicine: their patients.

Supported by the ACGME, the Back to Bedside initiative will provide:
  • Competitive funding opportunity for resident- and/or fellow-led teams to innovate
  • Creation of a learning collaborative made up of resident-/fellow-led research teams
  • National dissemination of successful projects

Thank you to all who applied to Back to Bedside. The 2019 application process for Back to Bedside is now closed. Applicants will be informed of decisions no later than June 1.

See what current Back to Bedside participants have to say about the initiative and the positive impacts their projects are fostering.
