Part of SEAMO’s vision is to foster excellence in research and education and facilitate the transformation of academic medicine. All SEAMO-funded physicians are encouraged to apply for the program’s funding to further their medical educational pursuits.  

As part of the MEDP, physicians will receive 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 School of Medicine faculty development workshops or attendance at educational meetings (e.g. AAMC, CCME, etc.).

Past MEDP grant recipients have used their funding to:

  • Participate in the Program for Educators in Health Professions
  • Attend the Canadian Leadership Institute for Medical Education (CLIME)
  • Enrol in Masters of Education or Medical Education Programs
