AMPA Research Seed Grant
In 2010, AMPA established an Air Medical Physician Research Seed Grant Program to encourage research in the air medical/critical care transport environment. We are happy to again offer a $2,500 grant toward a trainee applicant's research project (fellow, resident/registrar, medical student) who is working under the research mentorship of an Active AMPA member.

An increasing number of young physicians are experiencing difficulty finding the resources and support to do research. Consequently, fewer physicians are choosing careers in research which is a terrible loss to medicine. Subsequently, there are fewer individuals providing meaningful scientific contributions specific to EMS, HEMS, or critical care transport medicine.
To address this trend, AMPA has established the Air Medical Physician Research Seed Grant to encourage medical students, residents/registrars, and fellows to enter the research field. The program provides a $2,500 (US dollars) grant to help him/her conduct small basic science, applied, or clinical research projects. These funds will round out new project budgets, rather than sustain current initiatives. These funds will favor research in air medical, prehospital transport, or critical care transport medicine.
