The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners supports research and education that benefits general practice, rural general practice, and rural hospital medicine, and is welcoming applications for its final round of funding for 2023 which opened today, Wednesday 2 August.
Applications are welcomed from any individual, group or organisation undertaking research in this field. Grants are typically in the range of $5,000 - $20,000 for individual applications, although up to $40,000 can be awarded.
The College’s Research and Education Committee (REC) provides financial support to those conducting research or education projects, and is looking for applications that reflect the five key areas of the College’s Statement of Strategic intent (Te Rautaki):
- Supporting our members
- Improving health equity in New Zealand
- Quality general practices
- Becoming a contemporary and sustainable organisation
- Education excellence.
Previous successful applications have included research into exploring inequity in access to medications for type 2 diabetes, rural placements of health professionals, capitation fees, and identifying threshold concepts to contribute to enhanced general practice teaching and learning.
Applications close on Wednesday, 13 September 2023, and will be considered by the College’s Research and Education Committee (REC).
