About AACOM Research Grants

The purpose of the grants program is to support medical education research and institutional research.  

The Osteopathic Heritage Foundation recently announced that it will support the expansion of this successful AACOM program by providing $150,000 over the course of the next three years. From 2012 to 2014, AACOM will be able to award at least five medical education research grants and five institutional research grants annually, and the potential for each grant has increased from a maximum of $5,000 to a maximum of $10,000. New applicants should plan for ‘publication’ of results (journal submission or AACOM Annual Meeting presentation proposal).
