The overarching purpose of the Multi-Institutional Education Research Grant (MERG) is to help researchers complete high quality, multi-institutional educational research studies. As such, once applications are received, selected proposals will be invited to present their research “Shark Tank” to ASE members during the ASE 2022 Annual Meeting. The audience will have the chance to vote for their favorite proposal, and this information will help the Surgical Education Research Committee reviewers to choose the winning proposal for the $2,500 Multi-Institutional Research Grant. Additionally, presenters will be able to seek additional sites interested in participating in well-defined multi-institutional surgical education research projects. Applications are due by March 18, 2022.
