April 2018

From the Desk of the President

Hello UNYPR Members,

Doctors Across New York (DANY) is now on an annual funding cycle. This is great news as for many years we have asked for this so we could use it as a recruitment tool instead of a retention program. The funding will now require three years of service with a maximum amount of $120,000 per candidate. There will be 75 applications slots for 2018. I understand there will also be changes to the RFA including the submission, which will now need to be submitted through the NY Grants Gateway. 

Unfortunately, the RFA was supposed to be open for application in February. As we know with the state; nothing is ever on time. With that said, UNYPR has invited Katie Gordon, Director of Research and Legislation Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS), to join us for UNYPR Membership Meeting on May 10th.  Our hope is that she will be able to provide us with some details regarding work of DANY and HANY and how it will ultimately impact our work as recruiters. If you have not sent in your RSVP for the May 10 meeting, please clink here.


Ginny Olson,
