Quality Improvement Project Grant

Starting this year, NMPRA will be offering a Quality Improvement Project Grant to its resident members. One grant of up to $150 will be awarded annually to a Med-Peds resident who is seeking to contribute to the ever-growing field of quality improvement at their home institution. Grantees will be asked to present their project at the NMPRA National Meeting the following year and will have their work featured in NMPRA’s quarterly newsletter which is distributed nationally. The project will also be highlighted on the NMPRA website.
