RWJF Funding Opportunity - Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program

Modified: March 3, 2015

The Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program (AMFDP) was developed as a result of more than 20 years of experience with RWJF’s Minority Medical Faculty Development Program, which sought to increase the number of underrepresented minorities on medical faculties.

As part of RWJF’s ongoing efforts to increase diversity in health and health care, the AMFDP offers four-year postdoctoral research awards to increase the number of faculty from historically disadvantaged backgrounds who 1) can achieve senior rank in academic medicine and dentistry and 2) who will encourage and foster the development of succeeding classes of such physicians and dentists. Please note applicant eligibility requirements include being from historically disadvantaged backgrounds (ethnic, financial, or education); being a U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and in the process of completing or have already completed their formal clinical training. More information is available on the program website here.

If you are interested in applying for this funding opportunity, please contact Traci Galbaugh, Senior Associate Director, Foundation Relations, Feinberg School of Medicine or by phone at (312) 503-7072. Please note that the deadline to apply is March 18th!
