Letters of Intent due February 25, 2013.
Funds are available ($64,000) to support instructional improvement projects focused on interprofessional education, to be initiated during the 2013-2014 academic year. This grant program is funded by UCSF Library and the Center for Innovation in Interprofessional Education. We envision that "UCSF graduates will be able to work collaboratively and interprofessionally to advance patient care, public service, and research."
UCSF faculty, students, and staff are invited to apply by submitting a letter of intent due February 25, 2013. Through a competitive review process a smaller set of LOIs will be slected for further development. Investigators affiliated with the selected LOIs will then be invited to submit full-scale proposals, which will be due April 15, 2013. A description of the criteria that will be used to assess both the LOI and the full proposal submissions follows below.
Proposals may support interprofessional education through a wide range of activities, while fitting the definition of interprofessional education: “when students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes” (WHO 2010). Proposals will be expected to be developed by, or specify, collaborators in two or more schools. Supported activities include development of new educational programs, modification of existing instructional programs, introduction of experimental approaches to content or processes, faculty development, teaching evaluation, and student assessment activities. Small start-up and pilot projects will also be considered. There is no requirement that projects be technology-focused.
Grants will be awarded at a maximum of $16,000 per project. Projects may have a duration of12 to 24 months beginning in July 2013. Funds can be used to cover faculty release time as well as other project costs.
