Funding Opportunities

Medical Education Development Program (MEDP)

SEAMO-funded physicians interested in the opportunity to develop, upgrade or enhance their skills in medical education, or medical education scholarship and research, are invited to apply for the Medical Education Development Program (MEDP).

The MEDP supports SEAMO’s objective of building an academy of physicians who are educational leaders and scholars with a critical mass sufficient to enable the continuous implementation of best principles and leading practices in medical education. In 2021, $284,000 is being dedicated to the Spring and Fall MEDP competitions.

All SEAMO-funded physicians are encouraged to apply for the program, which provides grants of up to $50,000, over a five-year period, for initiatives such as:

  • An advanced degree in Medical Education
  • A short-term sabbatical to train with internationally recognized experts
  • A training program (e.g. Harvard Macy)
  • A medical education leadership program (e.g. CLIME)

Please note, the program does not fund attendance at educational meetings (e.g. AAMC, CCME, etc.) or School of Medicine faculty development workshops.

Past successful applicants have received funding to participate in the Program for Educators in Health Professions, to attend the Canadian Leadership Institute for Medical Education (CLIME) and to enroll in Masters of Education/Medical Education programs.

The Spring 2021 round of applications are now closed. Thank you to those who applied. Please save the date for the Fall MEDP competition - applications due Friday, October 29, 2021. For more information on the program, see the rules and evaluation criteria. Download an application and budget

Innovation Fund

Announcement - May 2021

We are currently working on a redesign of our Innovation Fund Competition. We look forward to launching this year's competition in August. Stay tuned!

The AHSC AFP Innovation Fund competition is a collaboration between the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) and the Ontario Medical Association (OMA). It provides short-term (one or two-year) seed funding to support innovative projects that will transform health care delivery in Ontario.

A total of up to $1.2 million is dedicated to the Innovation Fund competition, which is in its thirteenth year. Of the approximately 40 applications SEAMO receives annually, an average of eight projects are funded.

As a result of the Binding Arbitration Settlement, this year only, successful applications are eligible to receive up to $200,000 for two years. 

According to the AHSC AFP Innovation Fund Framework and Guidelines, projects are particularly innovative if they:

  • Have a definite potential to impact health care delivery
  • Are implementable and contains realistic goals
  • Have clear, measurable metrics for success
  • Offer opportunities to translate new knowledge into medical practice
  • Are transferable to other institutions, or regions, or the province
