What is Medical Education Research?
The Medical Education Research Certificate (MERC) program is intended to provide the knowledge necessary to understand the purposes and processes of medical education research, to become informed consumers of the medical education research literature, and to be effective collaborators in medical education research. Alone, MERC is not intended to produce independent medical education researchers.
The program is open to all who are interested in improving their educational research skills and is targeted for those with a background in medical education but relatively less experience in conducting educational research. The courses are targeted for clinicians and other educators who desire to learn research skills that will enable collaborative participation in medical education research projects.
Each three hour workshop focuses on a key skill or area in educational research, emphasizes opportunities for hands-on activities and active participation, so as to maximize the applicability of the workshop principles. Six workshops of the participant's choosing must be completed to qualify for the certificate. These can be taken in any order. See workshop descriptions.
The cost is $50 for each registered workshop. Those interested in receiving a MERC Certificate must complete six (6) workshops. In order to receive a MERC Certificate, you must for an additional fee of $100.
Registration for MERC workshops hosted by the AAMC and its regional divisions take place through the AAMC. MERC workshops hosted by other societies or organizations will offer registration through their own meeting registration system. Every effort will be made to find space for MERC Certificate registrants in MERC workshops, but no guarantees can be made. Slots available to MERC registrants may be limited for workshops sponsored by some societies or organizations.
