ABMS Visiting Scholars Program

The ABMS Visiting Scholars Program of the American Board of Medical Specialties is seeking research projects that demonstrate the impact certification programs have on public health, and national quality and safety priorities; accelerate the adoption of certification assessments relevant to the emerging health care environment; and advance collaborative solutions for certification within and across specialties.
During the year-long program, ABMS Visiting Scholars remain at their home organizations and work with self-selected mentors. They participate in monthly interactive webinars where they provide research project updates to their peers and a select panel of subject matter experts and Visiting Scholars alumni who provide guidance, support, and solutions to barriers they may be experiencing in their research work.
An award of up to $12,500 is provided to support the direct costs of research and travel expenses associated with program participation. The award may be applied to an existing research grant that supports the same research project or research focus area.
Current research priorities are:
• Diagnostic excellence within and across specialties.
• Competency-based medical education and assessments across the medical education continuum.
• Racial equity and diversity across the health care continuum.
• Physician engagement in quality improvement and patient safety initiatives.
• Research areas of interest to the ABU include Objective Structured Clinical Examinations in Urology and new forms of formative and summative testing.
If you are interested in applying to the program, consider registering for the 75-minute webinar to provide an overview of the program for prospective applicants at 5:00 pm CT on April 19, 2022
