Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) Faculty Development Award Program

Application Deadline: Monday, March 25, 2019

The purpose of this program is to increase opportunities for faculty who are underrepresented in medicine, and who are committed to diversity, inclusion and equity, to advance to senior positions in academic medicine and leadership at MGH. The two awards categories include: The Physician/Scientist Development Award (PSDA) and the Clinician/Teacher Development Award (CTDA). Each award provides $120,000 over four years and is designed for MGH-appointed faculty pursuing different career goals.

  • The Clinician-Teacher Development Award (CTDA) – The CTDA is funded by the Massachusetts General Physicians Organization and is designed for URM faculty pursuing a career as a clinician teacher, community leader or administrator. Please view the 2019 CTDA Call for Application and the CTDA FAQs.
  • The Physician/Scientist Development Award (PSDA) - The PSDA is funded by the MGH Executive Committee on Research and is designed for URM fellows or faculty pursuing a career as a physician-scientist or scientist. Please view the 2019 PSDA Call for Application and the PSDA FAQs .
  • 2019 CDI Faculty Development Award Consultation Service - This service is designed to help 2019 applicants develop a strong application for the Physician-Scientist and Clinician-Teacher Development Awards. Through this service, you can speak with an Award alumna for advice on your application, including your research plan, personal statement, and letters.
