Abstract

In 1998, the Board of Governors of the Mayo Clinic requested that the Education Committee design and implement a program to grant time and resources to clinical faculty to support the development of educational projects. The essence of the resulting Clinician-Educator Award Program is the concept of using funding to award time and resources for educational projects judged to be meritorious by an impartial, peer-review-based faculty mentoring process. The authors report early experiences with the program, which was enthusiastically accepted by faculty, to provide a model to help other academic health centers, especially those with salary-based faculty, to facilitate educational innovation and scholarship despite the growing constraints on academic clinicians' time and resources.
