澳门六合彩app下载 supports research and education that benefits general practice, rural general practice and rural hospital medicine through three funding rounds each year.

Applications open today Friday 17 May for the second of three funding rounds in 2024.

Applications are welcomed from anyone who is undertaking research in this field. You do not have to be a doctor or a member of the College to apply. Grants are typically in the range of $5,000 - $20,000 for individual applications although up to $40,000 can be awarded

The College鈥檚 Research and Education Committee (REC) provides financial support to those conducting research or education projects and is looking for applications that reflect the five key areas of the College鈥檚 Statement of Strategic intent (Te Rautaki):

  • Supporting our members
  • Becoming a contemporary and sustainable organisation
  • Improving health equity in New Zealand
  • Education excellence
  • Quality general practices.

Previous successful applications have included research exploring whether there is equitable access to ADHD medications, the contribution of rural hospitals to the health of their communities, capitation fees, and how rural, primary and community care can influence maternal health outcomes.

Applications close on Friday 28 June 2024 and will be considered by the College鈥檚 Research and Education Committee (REC).
