About Us

The CAME Foundation was created in February 2012 thanks to the efforts and vision
of Dr. Meridith Marks, University of Ottawa and successfully received registered charity status
in 2013. The CAME Foundation has a Board of Directors and is dedicated to advancing eligible
activities of CAME for the benefit of medical educators and those they serve.

Mission

The purpose of the CAME Foundation is to advance medical education by:

  • providing support through scholarships, bursaries, awards or other forms of financial assistance to persons or organizations engaged in or intending to engage in research or education in the field of medical education
  • providing support to conferences, courses, seminars, training programs and workshops focused on medical education and related research; and
  • receiving or maintaining a fund or funds and to transfer from time to time all or part thereof or the income therefrom to other charities under the Income Tax Act (Canada) that engage in medical education.

CAME Foundation Priority Objectives

  • Create an annual peer-reviewed grant competition exclusively to support Canadian medical education research and innovation
  • Support up to two educators from across Canada each year to travel to other academic sites to learn, share ideas and collaborate on new initiatives
  • Build on the existing Ian Hart fund to ensure a sustained legacy to support CAME initiatives, well into the future
  • Support the development of new educational programs that use best evidence and expertise from across Canada to help teachers and educators in their academic roles
  • Support CAME in its development of well-researched and relevant public statements and position papers on issues of importance to medical education in Canada.

CAME Wooster Family Grant in Medical Education

Opportunities for peer-reviewed grant support in medical education are limited. Emerging educators and those with new unfunded projects are particularly challenged in attracting support at these critical times. This award is meant to support new and innovative projects in medical education that are not part of a larger, formalized and funded education research program.
