AMS Healthcare Announces 2022 History of Medicine and Healthcare Award Recipients

AMS is very pleased to announce our five 2022 research grant and fellowship award recipients joining the collective of over 50 historians that have received post doctoral fellowships, doctoral completion awards and project grants since the program’s inception in 2015. The AMS History of Medicine and Healthcare Awards Program promotes scholarship, teaching, and public interest in history of healthcare, disease, and medicine. The AMS Healthcare Program incorporates 3 types of awards: Post-Doctoral Fellowships of $45,000, Doctoral Completion Awards of $25,000, and Project Grants of up to $10,000. These outstanding individuals, chosen by an expert review panel, will certainly enhance the scope of History of Medicine research in Canada and beyond, and act as a source of lessons that could help shape Canadian healthcare.

Since the 1970s, and with the help of many partners, AMS Healthcare has worked to elevate the History of Medicine’s standing in the academic community and beyond. Today, the study is thriving across our country with AMS as its main source of support. Our goal is to raise interest in the topic, broaden the scope of research, and shape how the subject is taught. Funding is available to researchers, healthcare professionals, and students. The funding for the 2023 awards will open on November 1, 2022, with over 250K available.
