Office of Health and Medical Education Scholarship
Health Science and Medical Education
Research and Innovation Funding Competition 2017-2018


The Office of Health and Medical Education Scholarship (OHMES) was created in 2013 to support and develop a culture of excellence in health and medical education scholarship at the University of Calgary. To that end, OHMES is pleased to announce the fourth annual Health Science and Medical Education Research and Innovation Funding Competition.

For this call we define two kinds of project submissions:

  • Research projects: these are focused on knowledge generation through the use of scientific methods of various kinds, typically based around the exploration of a particular set of circumstances such as the impact of an intervention, the experiences of learners and teachers, or a recurring topic across a body of research literature.
  • Innovation projects: these are focused on the application of knowledge (such as research findings and research syntheses) to guide changes in educational practice to improve, extend, or refocus them. Innovation projects should include knowledge synthesis, development, application, and evaluation stages.

OHMES has instituted a Letter of Intent process for this competition, in order to ensure that the proposed project has a direct link to medical education before proceeding to the full proposal stage.  It is also anticipated that the LOI process will assist applicants in developing a full proposal.

Due:  29 September 2017
