Investigating the Education of Medical Professionals
Medical education research encompasses investigations of the education of medical professionals, including research related to undergraduate (medical school), graduate (residency), and continuing medical education. Medical education research can focus on any number of topics, including curriculum development, teaching methods, student evaluation, teacher evaluation, course evaluation, faculty development, admission and preparation of candidates for medical training, factors influencing career choice, research methodology, and use of technology in education.
At UNECOM we are investigating the effectiveness of the active learning student centered pedagogies we employ in the undergraduate medical school curriculum. We are also evaluating the effectiveness on of on-line prerequisite laboratory science courses as preparation for the medical school curriculum.
