The Academy's Innovations Funding program supports faculty who research, create and implement new ways of teaching complex diagnostic and treatment skills that will advance
the quality of health care. The program supports development of new curricular elements, focused faculty development undertakings, comparison of pedagogical approaches, and innovative approaches to learner assessment. Open to all faculty in the School of Medicine, these intramural grants serve as a catalyst for the development of curriculum that addresses the constantly changing ways in which physicians practice medicine.
Innovations Funding projects are typically funded for one year, with the expectation that, if successful, the curricular innovation will be sustained in some other fashion. Since the program's inception, the Academy has awarded more than $2 million to over 90 projects, many of which have been disseminated in some form of educational scholarship.

2013 Collaboration with the Center for Interprofessional Health Education and the Library
The Academy, Center for IPE and the Library have collaborated on Innovations Funding for Education, a joint call for proposals to address a range of priorities in education of students and trainees at UCSF. Proposals will be submitted to and developed within UCSF Open Proposals. Using this forum, which encourages feedback and comments, we aim to provide cross-fertilization of ideas and formations of partnerships that are not easily achieved with a traditional proposal process.
