Catalyst Award

The Macy Catalyst Awards support projects that impact the clinical learning environment and improve the experience of residents and fellows in one of the three priority areas supported by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation:

  • Promoting diversity, equity, and belonging
  • Increasing high-performing, interprofessional teams
  • Preparing future health professionals to navigate ethical dilemmas

Successful proposals will describe, implement, and evaluate innovative strategies to equip learners with the tools, skills, and strategies to flourish in the clinical learning environment. The first two completed cycles have already demonstrated the potential of these awards to make positive changes within their specific learning environments as well as to provide important models that can be utilized by other programs and institutions. 

For the third cycle of the Macy Catalyst Awards, the Foundation will provide up to $100K in total support over an 18-month period.

Interested faculty at Duke can contact Brooke Church (brooke.church@duke.edu) for assistance with their application.
