JAMA. 1998;279(8):568AJ. doi:10.1001/jama.279.8.568AJ-JRF80003-1-2

Any resident or fellow physician interested in initiating a project that will further any AMA policy set forth in the AMA Policy Compendium can apply for a grant. Residents must complete an application and include relevant support documentation. Applications are available from the AMA Department of Resident Physicians Services at 515 N State St, Chicago, IL 60610, by telephone at (312) 464-4751, or by e-mail: rps@ama-assn.org.

Grant applications are reviewed by a committee consisting of 5 AMA staff members and 1 resident physician. Applications must be endorsed by the state medical society of the state in which the resident resides. Following the review, applicants are notified of the committee's decision. Grant checks are sent to the state medical society, which dispenses funds to the appropriate organization. (Grant checks cannot be made out to individual residents.) Grant recipients are required to submit a program evaluation to the AMA after the program is completed.

Contact Gloria Robertson of the AMA-RPS at (312) 464-5529 or at gloria_robertson@ama-assn.org if you have questions regarding the Policy Promotion Grant program.
