Grants to USA nursing and medical educators to support career development and innovative educational approaches. Funding is intended to promote the careers of promising doctorally prepared faculty members in medicine and nursing. The goal of the program is to promote faculty who are committed to careers in health professional education, are innovators, and have shown promise as future leaders.

The program will support the Macy Faculty Scholars in leading new educational innovations at their home institutions and will provide opportunities for further career development through national meetings and participation in other Macy activities. Program highlights include:

  1. At least 50% protected time to pursue a mentored educational project at the home institution.
  2. Participation in the Annual Macy Faculty Scholars Meeting.
  3. Mentoring from the National Advisory Committee.
  4. Participation in one or more Harvard Macy Institute programs.
  5. Access to other Macy grantees and programs.

The Foundation has particular interest in innovations that take place in learning environments where clinical care is delivered. Within these clinical learning environments, the Foundation is interested in projects that:

  1. Advance equity, diversity, and belonging.
  2. Enhance collaboration among health professionals, educators, and learners.
  3. Successfully navigate and address ethical dilemmas that arise when the principles of the health professions are in conflict with barriers imposed by the health delivery system.

This is a career development award. The Foundation is interested in candidates for whom the program will have the maximum impact at this point in their career and who also have the greatest possibility for future impact in their careers. Macy Faculty Scholars will participate in the Annual Macy Faculty Scholars Meeting and will be part of the family of Macy Faculty Scholars for the remainder of their careers. The following factors will be considered in the selection process:

  1. Evidence of a strong commitment to a career as an educator in the health professions.
  2. Early promise as an educator and institutional leader.
  3. Evidence of innovation and creativity in career to date.
  4. Merit of the educational innovation proposed and the likelihood that it will influence national trends in health professions education.
  5. Evidence of strong institutional support.
  6. Likelihood that the candidate will become a national leader in health professions education.
  7. Evidence that the candidate’s institution supports the careers of educators and is a fertile environment for educational innovation.
