Center for Educational Innovation and Scholarship
The Center for Educational Innovation and Scholarship (CEIS) promotes educational research resources for physicians in medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital.
The Center for Educational Innovation and Scholarship (CEIS) promotes educational research resources for physicians in medicine. The goal is to enhance research activities and scholarship in medical education to advance the mission of the Mass General.
We offer small grants up to $10,000, direct, for research studies or pilot projects that investigate innovative, cutting edge approaches to education at undergraduate, graduate or continuing medical education levels. We will then add indirect costs after the $10,000. Applications should clearly identify outcome measures and metrics evaluating them and should describe the relevance of the project and how the grant money will help bring the project to completion and publication over the next 6-12 months. The award is open to faculty and research fellows in the Mass General Department of Medicine or faculty from other departments who have a collaborator in the Department of Medicine actively engaged in the project.
We also offer small travel grants up to $1,500 for reimbursement of registration and travel expenses for presentation of a CEIS-supported medical education research project at a conference

Self-debriefing leads to similar improvements as facilitated debriefing when used in medical simulationNicholas Thibodeau-Jarry, MD, Paul Currier, MDSelf-debriefing using a new self-debriefing tool was as efficient as resident-led debriefing in improving the performance of interns in a simulated environment, but the interns had a more positive view of the resident-led debriefing.
Increasing connection between physicians to enhance joy in practice and prevent burnout: A study of faculty well-being groupsSusan Hata, MD, Arabella Simpkin, MD MMScHow to effectively manage burnout is an important unanswered question. To tackle the goals of reducing burnout, increasing engagement, inclusion and belonging among physicians, we propose a program that creates small communities of fellows in the Department of Medicine, who will gather to reflect on the meaningful and challenging aspects of their work, and to support one another.
