Medical Education Research methods


The Medical Education Research Scholar Track is a formal track within the School of Medicine curriculum for students interested in academic medicine and education scholarship. The track entails a comprehensive, longitudinal curriculum in medical education research that expands opportunities for students interested in medical education through a scholarly approach and is a compliment to the undergraduate medical curriculum at Georgetown University School of Medicine.


The purpose of the Education Research Scholar Track is to expose students who are interested in academic medicine to the scholarship of teaching and learning in a medical/clinical environment. Because a scholarly approach is an effective way to address challenges in education and improve pedagogy, by providing experience with research methods in an education environment, our hope is that the students will not only become informed consumers of the medical education research literature, but also become contributors through their own research in this exciting field.


The delivery of quality medical education, in both the classroom and the clinical setting, is essential for preparing physicians of the future. Innovative medical education methods are needed to provide exemplary patient care, and also to develop outstanding clinician educators who will engage in innovative research that will change paradigms and challenge the status quo.

Over the last three decades, research in medical education has contributed to our understanding of learning, teaching and assessment in medicine. There exists a growing body of knowledge about the process and outcome of medical education, derived primarily through evidence based principles. Engaging in scholarly research will prepare our future physicians for a life time of exemplary teaching and academic leadership.

A thoughtful, rigorous, evidence-based medical education curriculum leading to scholarly discovery improves the quality of future physicians’ education, teaching skills and methods, and ultimately improves patient care.
