The biennial Putting the Charter into Practice grant provides financial support to professional medical organizations, health systems/hospitals, academic medical centers and medical practices as they work to advance medical professionalism. The ABIM Foundation has partnered with the Council of Medical Specialty Societies to advance this initiative.

In 2011, this grant program will facilitate the development of innovative, emerging strategies to advance appropriate health care decision-making and stewardship of health care resources, one of the commitments of the Physician Charter, which states:

"While meeting the needs of individual patients, physicians are required to provide health care that is based on the wise and cost-effective management of limited clinical resources."
