From the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) Center for Interprofessional Education (IPE):
All UMB faculty are eligible to apply for an IPE Faculty Award. Please see the IPE web page for additional information. Submit your two-page proposal, including budget, to Patricia Danielewicz
Deadline for priority decision: Tuesday, July 31. Additional applications will be considered on a bi-monthly basis (September 2018, November 2018) pending availability of funds. Please visit our website for additional information and to download a proposed template.
Purpose: The purpose of the Faculty Award in Support of Interprofessional Education is to encourage and build a community of faculty members across the schools of UMB and throughout the University System of Maryland (USM) who have interest and expertise in interprofessional education. This includes, potentially, IPE activities nationally and internationally.
Activities: Faculty Awards may be used for a variety of endeavors that can include, but are not limited to, travel to other institutions to study IPE; regional and national meetings focused on IPE, including poster and podium presentations; educational products focused on IPE and other faculty development activities that are inclusive of UMB students from two or more schools. The funds must be used within a one-year window and any individual is limited to one award per year. Faculty Awards may provide a one-time salary enhancement stipend, if allowed by the UMB school and appropriate for the proposed activity.
Award management: All UMB faculty members are eligible to apply for a Faculty Award of up to $2,000 annually. Other faculty from USM 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 Standardized Patient Program, please contact the director, Nancy Budd Culpepper, at email@example.com. The co-directors of the Center for Interprofessional Education serve as the award committee.
