Innovation Fund Provincial Oversight Committee
The Innovation Fund is a joint initiative of the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) resulting from the Academic Health Science Centre Alternative Funding Plan. The Innovation Fund has funded over 1500 projects during the past 13 years, and is available to the more than 5,000 academic physicians working in 17 of Ontario’s Academic Health Science Centres.
Members of IFPOC include representatives from Academic Health Sciences Centres, the Ontario Medical Association, and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. At present, in addition to Chair Dr. Richard Weisel, the Committee consists of 12 members. The IFPOC attempts to strike a geographic balance among its membership wherever possible.
For information about the Innovation Fund or the Innovation Fund Provincial Oversight Committee, please contact either Committee Chair, Dr. Richard Weisel at the University Health Network, or Executive Director, Sarah Garson at Garson Consulting.
