Medical education research is hard. However, many residents and junior staff take a shot at it. It starts out fun – with the implementation of an innovative new way to do something! The momentum continues when the early results come in and you are able to attend a conference like CAEP to present. Everyone is fascinated with what you’ve done and wants to learn about your work.
And then you get home, and your mentor turns to you and asks: “How’s the paper going? Have you written this up yet?”
You sigh, and think: “If only there was a guide on how to get published in #MedEd…”
A Step In the Right Direction
Three years ago, CAEP launched their first national Academic Symposia. This resulted in three Consensus Conference documents defining and guiding our emergency medicine community towards an era of increased scholarship in medical education. These documents certainly have been useful in setting the tone for the CAEP education working group‘s (EWG’s) work in the past few years and have guided many clinician educators looking for direction.
This time around: We need your help!
In the spring of 2016, the CAEP EWG will host the Academic Symposia again, and this time we need your help.
A group of relatively junior clinician educators and residents have conducted thorough reviews of the literature to find the best advice for meded researchers. We are hoping to add to this by crowd-sourcing tips and tricks about how to succeed in publishing various types of medical education scholarship. Today, we invite you to complete the following survey about QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH. Previously, we have done the same with qualitative research and innovation reports. Next week we’ll cover review papers.
If you can be so kind as to spend 10 minutes filling out the survey below, we would much appreciate your help! Stay tuned for our other surveys which will come out the next few weeks!
