University of Maryland, Baltimore Center for Interprofessional Education Faculty Award in Support of Interprofessional Education
Deadline for priority decision: Wednesday, Sept. 30.
Additional applications will be considered on a bi-monthly basis (November 2015, January 2016) pending availability of funds. Please visit our website for additional information and to download a proposal template.
Purpose: The purpose of the Faculty Award in Support of Interprofessional Education (IPE) is to encourage and build a community of faculty members across the schools of the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and throughout the University System of Maryland who have interest and expertise in interprofessional education. This includes, potentially, IPE activities nationally and internationally.
Activities: The Faculty Awards may be used for a variety of endeavors that could include, but would not be limited to, travel to other institutions to study IPE; regional and national meetings focused on IPE, including abstract presentations; pilot educational projects that are inclusive of UMB students from two or more schools; and other faculty development activities. The awards will be given for one year with the potential for an additional one-year renewal depending on the project/activity, but the Faculty Awards are not envisioned to provide ongoing faculty salary support.
Award Management: All UMB faculty members are eligible to apply for a Faculty Award of up to $2,000 annually. Other faculty from the University System of Maryland require a partner from the UMB faculty and are eligible for up to a $1,000 award. A two-page proposal, including a budget, should be submitted via email to the Center for Interprofessional Education. Please include a title for the award, along with a description of the proposed activity and its potential to further IPE at UMB. If you plan to use standardized patients through the Clinical Education and Evaluation Laboratory, please contact the Program Manager, Nancy Budd Culpepper. The co-directors of the Center for Interprofessional Education serve as the award committee.
