  • Frymoyer Scholars

    Through the Frymoyer Scholars Program, the John W. and Nan P. Frymoyer Fund for Medical Education supports physicians and nurses who are actively engaged in teaching University of Vermont medical and nursing students and who embody the best qualities of the clinician teacher. The program is an investment in outstanding medical education and promotes teaching that emphasizes the art of patient care.

    Individuals elected as Frymoyer Scholars are awarded up to $25,000 a year for two years to develop innovative educational products or programs and/or to improve their teaching skills and in turn the relationship between clinician and patient. These funds should be used to complete a project or take courses in faculty development/bedside teaching that might not otherwise be done due to lack of funding. The 2014 Call for Proposals is available below. For more information please contact the Office of Medical Student Education at 802.656.0722.

  • Northeast Group on Education Affairs (NEGEA) Research Grants

The Northeast Group on Educational Affairs (NEGEA) supports and encourages scholarship in medical education. To help its members participate in opportunities that provide educational scholarship, the NEGEA provides funding to initiate new Medial Education Scholarship, Research and Evaluation (MESRE – formerly RIME) proposals. The NEGEA will provide up to two research grants for two years. The grant award may total up to $3000 for submissions involving one NEGEA institution and $5000 for submissions involving the collaboration of 2 or more institutions. The NEGEA also seeks to promote collaborative projects across institutions, and sections (UGME, GME, CME, and MESRE), and seeks to stimulate the development of a community of educational scholars. The results of these projects will be public and presented at a NEGEA regional meeting.
