New Grant Program to Build Trust and Support Innovations in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

ABIM News Release (11/10/20)

The Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), the ABIM Foundation, the American College of Physicians and the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation have announced a new grant program for internal medicine residents and faculty. The program will underwrite projects for promoting trust and create a more equitable health system by embedding diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within the fabric of internal medicine education and training. The sponsors are soliciting proposals that address the relationship between trust and issues of prejudice and diversity at the patient/physician, team and health system tiers; examples include medical education and training advances that incorporate DEI best practices. Letters of intent are due by Dec. 10 and selected applicants will be invited to submit full proposals early next year, with grants to be allocated in spring 2021. The sponsors are committing $300,000 in total, including awards at the $20,000, $5,000 and $2,500 levels. "Finding creative ways to help internal medicine physicians build a more inclusive and equitable system can help engender trust among those with justifiable mistrust," said Richard A. Baron, MD, president and CEO of ABIM and the ABIM Foundation.
