Medical Education Research Certificate (MERC) Program  Sessions
Information - Coming Soon

The Medical Education Research Certificate program is intended to provide the knowledge necessary to understand the purposes and processes of medical education research, to become informed consumers of the medical education research literature, and to be effective collaborators in medical education research. By itself, the MERC is not intended to produce independent medical education researchers. The program is open to all who are interested in improving their educational research skills and is targeted for those with a background in medical education but relatively less experience in conducting educational research. The courses are targeted for clinicians and other educators who desire to learn research skills that will enable collaborative participation in medical education research projects. More

  2. Discuss assessment strategies for performance of procedures and team-based decisions
  3. Explore reliable measures for assessing resident competencies through simulation
  4. Review resources for creating and designing a patient simulation laboratory
