Resident Research Grants

Resident Research Grants are short-term, concise health research projects, which have been largely developed by the Resident. The majority of the work involved in completing the research must be done by the resident who will be referred to as the Principal Investigator of the project. The project must be supervised by a physician with an academic appointment. Up to $20,000 per project is available and project duration is up to 12 months.

Applications for the Foundation's Resident Research Grants must be in one of the following three areas: Clinical Research; Medical Education Research & Development; and Health Systems Research.

To be eligible for a Resident Research Grant, the Resident / Principal Investigator must meet each of the following criteria:

  1. Salary as a Resident is provided by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
  2. Registration in a recognized program leading certification by the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons or the College of Family Physicians. Residents in Royal College programs by accreditation without certification are also eligible.
  3. Registered as a post-graduate student at the university where residency training is being taken.
