American Board of Medical Specialties

The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is now accepting applications for the 2023-2024 ABMS Visiting Scholars Program™. This one-year, part-time program positions early-career physicians and research professionals as active contributors and future leaders in health care. Applications must be received by 11:59 pm CT on June 18, 2023. 

The ABMS Visiting Scholars Program allows participants to:

  • Conduct research of value to their home institutions and the larger certification community.
  • Strengthen research methodologies, data analytics and overcome barriers in consultation with research mentors, scholar peers and alumni, ABMS leaders and subject matter experts.
  • Develop a robust professional network of national health care thought leaders, from specialty Member Boards, national thought leaders across the medical education curriculum, research mentors, peers, and alumni scholars.
  • Engage with the ABMS Community through participation in ABMS Committee Meetings, Member Board Executive Forums, ABMS Stakeholder Council Meetings, ABMS-sponsored symposia and other professional forums.
  • Disseminate research nationally across the certification, medical education, and quality improvement community.

Early career physicians, junior faculty, fellows, and residents are eligible, as well as individuals holding master or doctorate degrees in public health, health services research, educational evaluation and statistics, public health policy and administration, or other relevant disciplines. Veterans Affairs trainees and staff are also welcome to apply. Visiting Scholars will receive a $15,000 grant to support the direct costs of research and travel expenses associated with program participation.
