Deadline: March 15, 2023
Applications are open for the Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Programme (AMFDP) 2023. The Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Programme (AMFDP) offers four-year postdoctoral research awards to physicians, dentists, and nurses from historically marginalized backgrounds.
They expect scholars to spend at least 70 percent of their time engaged in research. Scholars should be committed to working toward eliminating health disparities especially within underserved populations; to support succeeding AMFDP scholars; and to achieving senior rank in academic medicine, dentistry, or nursing.
The programme provides scholars with:
- development of research, academic, and leadership skills;
- ongoing mentoring by a distinguished national advisory committee;
- a grounding in the social determinants of health, health equity, and the elements of a Culture of Health;
- growth in communications skills to advance the impact of scholars’ research and scholarship in the field.
- RWJF will fund up to 10 four-year awards of up to $420,000 each in this grant cycle. Scholars will receive an annual stipend of up to $75,000 each, complemented by a $30,000 annual grant to support research activities.
- Additional awards are available through partnerships with the American Society of Hematology (ASH), the American Society of Nephrology (ASN), the American Heart Association (AHA), and the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD).
To be eligible for this award, applicants must be physicians, dentists, or nurses who:
- are from historically marginalized backgrounds;
- are U.S. citizens or permanent residents at the time of application, or individuals granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services at the time of application (changes in federal policy or law may necessitate that we consider adjustments in eligibility and grant terms);
- are completing or have completed their formal clinical training (they will give preference to those who have recently completed their formal clinical training or—in the case of nurses—their research doctorate);
- are not related by blood or marriage to any Officer or Trustee of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, nor are a descendant of its founder, Robert Wood Johnson.
Do you share Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s vision for leadership—and want to take the next step in your leadership journey? They encourage you to explore the Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Programme.
