Abstracts now accepted for Medical Education Research and Innovation Conference

The Wayne State University School of Medicine will hold its second annual Medical Education Research and Innovation Conference on Dec. 8 to showcase completed and in-progress medical education research and innovation projects conducted by students, residents, staff and faculty.

Last year’s inaugural conference saw more than 80 posters and oral presentations submitted, said Jason Booza, Ph.D., assistant dean of Continuous Quality Improvement and Compliance.

The virtual conference will take place from 2 to 6 p.m.

Featured speakers include Holly Gooding, M.D., associate professor of Pediatrics at the Emory University School of Medicine and co-director of the Harvard Macy Program for Educators in the Health Professions; and Anna Cianciolo, Ph.D., associate professor of Medical Education at the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine and editor in chief of Teaching and Learning in Medicine.

Submit abstracts for a completed or in-progress project using the links below:

Medical Education Research: Research related to the learning process that occurs within a medical education setting. Topics include, but are not limited to, learner characteristics, optimizing the learning process, assessment and evaluation, professional development, instruction design, technology in the learning environment and wellbeing. Research at any level (undergraduate, graduate, practitioner, faculty) of medical education is welcome. Medical education research can also include quality improvement projects.

Medical Education Innovation: Innovative curricula that address a current issue within medical education. The innovation should be based on learning principles and be designed to meet a specific need. Examples include, but are not limited to, health and wellness, quality improvement, patient safety, interprofessional education and service learning. You can submit a project as “Works in Progress," which includes research and innovation projects that are being developed or have yet to be completed. In place of results in the abstracts, please submit your analysis plan and lessons learned thus far.
