Deadline for Medical Education Research and Innovation Conference abstracts is Sept. 15

The Wayne State University School of Medicine is soliciting entries for its fifth annual Medical Education Research and Innovation Conference, to be held Nov. 16.

The conference showcases completed and in-progress medical education research and innovation projects conducted by students, residents, staff and faculty.

Entries will be accepted in three categories:  

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 are 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.
Works in Progress - which include research and innovation projects that are being developed or have yet to be completed. In place of results in the abstracts, entrants should submit an analysis plan and lessons learned thus far.
