Education Research-in-Progress

Formerly Medical Education Research and Scholarship Conference

Monthly Group Consultation Sessions
Wednesdays 12:15-1:15 in Mayo B645 / Med 112 Duluth (unless otherwise noted)

"The Medical School is committed to a data-driven outcomes approach to medical education and to developing the scholarly work of our educators. This conference provides an opportunity for faculty, staff, and trainees to brainstorm together on educational research projects at all stages of development from early ideas to finished products.”
Mark Rosenberg, MD, Vice Dean for Medical Education

Monthly scholarship consultation sessions provide the opportunity to consult with educational researchers and other colleagues in a friendly group setting. At the meetings, participants typically work on developing educational scholarship through brainstorming an idea, refining an abstract or grant proposal, or critiquing a manuscript prior to submission. These sessions help participants develop their own educational scholarship, as well as skills in critiquing educational scholarship.

This series has assisted many faculty in their medical education research and helped create an environment where our data works harder than we do! In addition, we often use this time to discuss upcoming conference submissions and specific journal calls for research and use of MedEdPortal for publication.

You are encouraged to attend these brown bag sessions as often as possible to help build a community of educational scholars interested in advancing excellence in academic scholarship.
