The AAD is proud to announce that through a generous contribution from The Elsevier Foundation and the Skin Disease Education Foundation (SDEF), both of whom share the AAD's commitment to continuing excellence in dermatology, the AAD has created an educational program called the Program for Innovative Continuing Medical Education in Dermatology (PICMED).
The program was established to facilitate dermatologists' continuing education through support and development of innovative continuing medical education programs.
Who will be considered?
Proposals from individuals with a clear association to dermatologic organizations will be given preference; however, all proposals to develop innovative continuing medical education programs will be considered.
- Multi-year grant: Applicants may request up to $50,000 (direct costs only) for a two (2) year funding period. 2nd year funding will be contingent on 1st year milestones being met.
- Single-year grant: Applicants may request up to $10,000 (direct costs only) for a one (1) year project period.
The CME program proposals may include creative needs assessment mechanisms, innovative use of technology, unique approaches to specific subject matter, novel presentation techniques, and use of existing educational paradigms in new environments.
The 2016 PICMED Grant application is now closed. Grant recipients will be notified in December 2016.
