Through grant funding from the Department of Health the Academy considers and sponsors a number of projects run by the various medical Colleges.
The projects must be applicable across medical specialties and have clear and demonstrable benefit to the medical profession as a whole as well as to the public. Colleges commit to match the grant funding from the Academy with either additional funding or equivalent resources.
