The Picker Gold Graduate Medical Education (GME) Challenge Grant Program provides 18-month grants to support the research and development of innovative projects within the graduate medical education setting, 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.
The Picker Gold GME Challenge Grant Program seeks proposals for specific interventions and innovations in GME programs that facilitate the development of patient-centered healthcare and humanism in medicine. 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.
