The ACGME's 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.
This initiative supports resident- and fellow-directed innovations. Awardees participate in Learning Collaboratives throughout the funding period to workshop and refine their projects and develop leadership skills. The work is shared on a national platform in a variety of ways.
This Back to Bedside funding cycle offers two options for applicants to consider: Open Innovation proposals and Project in a Box - Focused Innovation proposals.
Help spread the word! Email or post this flyer to share with residents and fellows.
