The Problem

Medical education research is hard. However, many residents and junior staff take a shot at it. Review papers are some of the most valuable and challenging types of papers to write in medical education. It can be overwhelming for a resident or junior faculty to take them on.

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 REVIEW PAPERS. Previously, we have done the same with qualitative research, quantitative research, and innovation reports (please consider filling these out as well!).

If you can be so kind as to spend 10 minutes filling out the survey below, we would much appreciate your help!
