The Picker Gold Graduate Medical Education (GME) Challenge Grant Program provides 18-month grants of between $15,000 and $25,000 to support the research and development of innovative projects within the GME setting, specific interventions designed to facilitate successful patient-centered care initiatives. Our goal is to help physicians incorporate practices that bring patient needs and wishes into the center of all healthcare interactions. Learn about the collaboration between The Gold Foundation and The Picker Institute.

The expected outcome of a grantee’s project will be a demonstration, including a robust dissemination plan, of the measurable effects and sustainability of the effort to enhance compassionate, patient-centered-care in residency education.

The Gold Foundation is specifically interested in projects that include a focus on the values of diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism.
