The ABIM Foundation will award grants for Putting the Charter into Practice, a program to advance professionialism among practicing physicians. This grant program will facilitate the development of innovative, emerging strategies to advance medical professionalism, specifically with regard to appropriate health care decision-making and stewardship of health care resources.
Applicants from health systems/hospitals, academic medical centers and medical groups are encouraged to apply, and the proposed initiatives must target practicing physicians.
The ABIM Foundation will award up to five grants of up to $20,000 each in 2011. The Foundation is partnering with the Council of Medical Specialty Societies to advance this initiative among practicing physicians.
The deadline for applications is March 31, 2011.
