CLIME’s mission is to advance and support health professions education at the University of Washington School of Medicine and throughout the WWAMI region using state-of-the-art methods, approaches, and activities. We seek to promote and advance an integrated continuum of health professions education.

In keeping with our mission, CLIME is pleased to announce a funding opportunity for faculty who are interested in pursuing education scholarship. The goal of this funding program is to provide CLIME members with opportunities to develop innovative education scholarship in the health professions, including the scholarship of discovery, integration, application, and teaching.  By providing ongoing support to these activities at UW, we hope to develop and support a community of education scholars.

We are particularly interested in funding projects that include junior faculty members. While a UW School of Medicine faculty member must be the submitting author on all applications , we strongly encourage interprofessional submissions. Priority will be given to projects that are innovative, enhance the quality of research in health sciences education, and promote the application of scholarship to practice.

CLIME has made a total of $20,000 available for funding during this grant cycle.  General awards are capped at $5,000. Travel and conference fees can NOT be supported by the grant. We seek to distribute awards across the five-state, WWAMI region. Awarded funds must be spent between July 1, 2022 and May 31st, 2023.
