Application Directives

         Phase One: All team leaders explore residency redesign
                                                          (September 30 - December 30, 2012)

  • Team members' names, CV, letter of interst and role in project, with identified team leader
  • Attestation that department chair will: a) provide the time if grant monies are received, and, b) agree to test the pilot/redesigned residency program beginning in 2014 or 2015
  • Statement of commitment to attend fall seminar series (at least one member of each team will be expected to attend)

Plan:  A seminar series (once every other week, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.) to evaluate and summarize current and pending overarching education and training needs, with consideration of the following:

  • Practice settings
  • Competencies, milestones and assessment methods
  • Societal needs
  • Cost and payment mechanisms
  • Regulations and waivers needed
  • Institutional needs and goals

During this phase, each team will begin to outline a redesign plan for their residency program, and prepare their proposal.

 At the end of this phase, it is expected that the group will create a summary statement expressing common themes and overall guiding principles.


                Phase Two: Two teams selected for award of $45,000 each
                                                                          (January 30 - June 30)

Two separate teams, one from an interventional/surgical specialty and one from a "cognitive" specialty will be selected.  Working independently, each team will further explore the issues delineated in Phase I as it pertains to their specific discipline.  The aims and guiding principles for residency program redesign will be further developed, and specialty-specific goals will be defined.  The team will then develop a pilot "ideal" residency for their discipline appropriate for Johns Hopkins Medicine, including incorporation of the principles of the Genes to Society Curriculum.  The program must be at least cost neutral, with an eye toward cost reduction.

It is expected that publication(s) will be submitted for the work done on the project, acknowledging Johns Hopkins Medicine, the Instutute for Excellence in Education and the Faculty Education Scholar Program.

 To be included in the Application: (10 page maximum)

  • Title page with title of project (not counted in page count)
  • Names of additional advisors and/or mentors listing their expertise/role, with brief statement from each agreeing to participate
  • Abstract (one page or less)
  • Background/needs assessment/literature review-bibliography/supporting data
  • Aims and guiding principles
  • Program description including ensuring the educational and training needs for the field are met; financial analysis and cost impact with an eye toward overall cost reduction; assurance that RRC requirements are met or a plan to obtain a waiver
  • Assessment plan for all components of the proposed program, including: educationial outcome, cost, safety, satisfaction (trainees, faculty, students, and patients), and success in meeting the overall aims.  How will success be determined?
  • The proposal should include a brief description of possible extension of the redesigned program to similar academic health centers
  • Detailed budget justification for use of grant money


                                         Phase Three: 12 month extension funding
                                                                          (2014 Year Two Extension)

The two teams selected for Phase II can apply for one additional year of funding of $50,000 to implement the redesigned program or pilot.  During these twelve months the teams will be expected to obtain any needed waivers from the RRC, seek outside funding to extend or study their plan, and begin to implement the pilot program (for 2014 or 2015 depending on the needs of the residency program), and provide their planned detailed assessment process.
