School of Health and Medical Sciences Award Clinical Grants
In August 2009, The School of Health and Medical Sciences awarded the first series of Clinical Education and Research Partnership Grants to affiliated clinical sites. The purpose of the grants is to enhance the collaboration between the academic and clinical components of the professional programs within the School.
For the 2009-2010 fiscal year, Palisades Medical Center, University Hospital-UMDNJ, The Children's Therapy Center, and PG Chambers School were chosen to receive grants. On August 12, 2009, the winners were invited to a reception on campus to be recognized and to receive their awards. Grant winners will be invited back to campus this Fall to provide an update of their projects.
