The RISE Fellowship is a 12-month fellowship aimed at promoting translational education within Michigan Medicine. RISE Fellows receive 0.15 effort and up to $5,000 to develop and implement a health science education innovation idea and participate in monthly sessions to learn innovation strategies, translational education and pedagogical principles. RISE specifically seeks HSEI ideas that will impact science, health, and/or healthcare. All Michigan Medicine faculty, staff, and learners are eligible to apply.
