Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research Liberia (PEER/Liberia) is a sub-program under PEER sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Based on the success of PEER, the U.S. Congress authorized funds designated to the PEER program to increase Liberia's clinical research capacity and support training of Liberian specialty and subspecialty physicians, particularly those charged with addressing the health care needs of Ebola survivors. PEER/Liberia is currently accepting proposals from U.S. medical schools and universities interested in working with A.M. Dogliotti College of Medicine (AMD) and the Liberia College of Physicians and Surgeons (LCPS) to build medical education capacity in Liberia. The deadline for applications has passed (August 25, 2017). Applications are being reviewed and applicants will be notified in October 2017.
