MPrOVE introduces new fellowship program to support faculty interested in right-sizing care

May 4, 2023  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Michigan Program on Value Enhancement (MPrOVE) is excited to announce the newly created MPrOVE Fellowship Program. Its purpose is to support early career faculty to a) advance innovative ideas to right-size care, b) build multi-disciplinary teams with operational partners & researchers and c) lead to positive impacts for patients & clinicians.  

Candidates should have interest in addressing & researching low-value care, advancing a project concept from idea to implementation and building relationships with operational partners, IHPI members and learners. Preference will be given to applications and project ideas demonstrating the following:

  • Potential to impact the BASE+ framework
  • Alignment with MPrOVE’s value-based mission of right-sizing care, increasing appropriateness and de-implementing low-value care
  • Candidates with career development potential
  • Potential for expansion & dissemination, either through broader implementation or larger-scale research that builds on initial project work

Applications are being accepted until May 12.  The program will provide mentorship to two selected fellows and offer direct support to early career faculty with ideas to right-size care.

Selected fellows will receive $25,000, which can be used at their discretion to advance project development (for example, to fund protected faculty effort or for additional project resources).

The application and details about the program can be found here. Funding is provided through the Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation. Faculty & researchers from any disciplinary background are eligible to apply. Selected candidates will begin the program in July. If you have questions, please contact Tony Cuttitta (
