ince 2014, NMPRA has awarded the NMPRA Research Grant which seeks to fund clinical, resident-driven med-peds research projects. The scope of funded research is broad, however NMPRA seeks to fund projects that aim to impact patient care, which is typically a clinical or laboratory-based project. Areas of research can include, but are not limited to: health services research, medical education, public health, epidemiology, hospitalist medicine, informatics, and other general medicine-pediatric clinical research domains. NMPRA would like to provide pilot funding to promising and innovative projects at a time in training when securing significant grant funding can be challenging.

NMPRA will award up to $2,500 per selected project. The number of awards will depend on the funds available and the size of the award requests of the selected projects.
