Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program

The Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program is now accepting applications from universities, schools of medicine and dentistry, and research institutions for four-year postdoctoral awards to support the research and career development of physicians and dentists from historically disadvantaged backgrounds. These medical professionals must be committed to developing careers in academic medicine and dentistry, and to serving as role models for students and faculty of similar backgrounds. The program defines the term “historically disadvantaged” to refer to individuals who face challenges because of their race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or similar factors.

The program will fund up to nine four-year awards in this grant cycle. Scholars will receive an annual stipend of up to $75,000 each, complemented by a $300,000 annual grant to support research activities.

The deadline for applications is March 15, 2012. Candidates must register and apply through the program’s website. For more information and to apply, click here.

Interested faculty members with questions about the program or who would like assistance with their applications are asked to contact Dr. Paul Spengler, Director of Foundation Relations, at 276-3955 or pspengler@admin.rochester.edu
