Education Research Grants
Education Research Grants (ERGs) aim to continue to build research capability in medical education and training with a specific focus on education improvement. The overarching objective is to develop evidence-based education initiatives that increase training capacity and improve educational outcomes. ERGs are awarded via a competitive process to Regional Training Organisations (RTOs), who partner with academic institutions to undertake and complete a research project.
In late 2016, the Department of Health devolved responsibility for the education research grants (ERG) program to the GP Colleges. The RACGP is administering three grants for the current (2016-2017) ERG cohort and will administer up to eight grants for the 2017-18 ERG intake.
