The ABPN has established two award programs: the Faculty Innovation in Education Award and the Research Award. While any projects relevant to the education and/or assessment of psychiatrists and neurologists will be considered, the Directors have identified several areas that are of particular interest to the ABPN. They include: innovative approaches to the development and assessment of professional competence; lifelong learning strategies; curricula for maintenance of certification, including teaching about MOC in residency; scope of practice; and public education about and input into Board certification.
The objectives of each award and the specific application requirements are described below, as are the projects of previous recipients. The submission deadlines are August 14, 2017, for the Faculty Innovation in Education Award and August 28, 2017, for the Research Award.
The ABPN Faculty Innovation in Education Award (formerly the Faculty Fellowship 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.
Each year, psychiatry and/or neurology 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.
