Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program (AMFDP) -- Call for Applications
The Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program (AMFDP) offers four-year postdoctoral research awards to physicians, dentists, and nurses from historically marginalized backgrounds. Scholars should be committed to working toward eliminating health disparities by achieving senior rank in academic medicine, dentistry, or nursing.
The program provides scholars with:

- ongoing mentoring by a distinguished national advisory committee;
- a grounding in the social determinants of health, health equity, and the elements of a Culture of Health;
- growth in communications skills to advance the impact of scholars’ research and scholarship in the field.
In this grant cycle, RWJF will fund up to 10 four-year awards of up to $420,000 each. Scholars will receive an annual stipend of up to $75,000 each, complemented by a $30,000 annual grant to support research activities.
