The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners supports research and education that benefits general practice, rural general practice and rural hospital medicine through three funding rounds each year.
Applications open today Tuesday 30 January for its first funding round of 2024.
Applications are welcomed from anyone who is undertaking research in this field. You do not have to be a doctor or a member of the College to apply. 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
- Becoming a contemporary and sustainable organisation
- Improving health equity in New Zealand
- Education excellence
- Quality general practices.
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 Tuesday 12 March 2024 and will be considered by the College’s Research and Education Committee (REC).
