Physician-Scientist Institutional Program


The Burroughs Wellcome Fund is seeking planning grant proposals from medical schools in the United States and Canada to create programs with the intent of increasing opportunities for the physician interested in a research career. 

This is a five-month planning grant (up to $30,000) to focus on developing a full proposal for submission to the Burroughs Wellcome Fund to create programs to increase the number M.D.’s who enter research.

The Fund provided planning grants to 30 institutions to develop full proposals for the award.  Up to 10 institutions will receive awards of $2.5 million ($500,000/year over five years) to institute their proposed activities.
