The directors of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) have established a faculty fellowship award. The award is intended to support the development of innovative education and/or evaluation projects that promote effective residency/fellowship training or lifelong learning of practicing psychiatrists and neurologists. Preference will be given to projects that have the potential for use in more than one site and to applicants who are at a junior or mid-faculty level.
Funding: Each year, up to two psychiatry and two neurology faculty fellows will be selected. The duration of the fellowship will normally be for two years with a maximum amount of funding of $50,000 per year or $100,000 total. This amount is intended to cover salary, fringe benefits, and other costs. No indirect costs will be covered. Fellows will be required to dedicate at least 25% of their professional time to the project.
Eligibility: Applicants must:
- be certified by the ABPN
- participate in the ABPN’s maintenance of certification program
- hold an unrestricted license to practice medicine in a state, commonwealth, territory, or possession of the United States
- comply with the ABPN’s conflict of interest policies and procedures
- hold a faculty appointment in a U.S. LCME-accredited medical school
Deadlines: Applicants for the 2015 awards must submit a completed Application Form and any related documentation by August 18, 2014, to the ABPN. Awards will be announced by November 3, 2014, with funding to start on January 1, 2015.
