Grants for Excellence in Medical Education (GEME)
The purpose of this program is to stimulate faculty to undertake long-term projects that have the potential to effect significant change and improvement in the education of medical students. Grant-supported projects may deal with virtually any aspect of medical education, including:
- instructional strategies
- educational applications of information technology
- integration of new topics or disciplines into the curriculum
- performance or knowledge assessment
- extracurricular student activities such as research, community service and international health
Projects may involve modifications of existing courses and clerkships, the planning and development of new ones or transference of programs already developed at other medical schools.
Winning GEME projects for 2010 are listed here. For more information about this program, please contact Dr. Grossman at 718.430.2693, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
