    The AMS Office of Faculty Professional Development is excited to sponsor the AAMC’s Medical Education Research Certificate program here at the medical school!

    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.

    The program is offered free of charge and open to all Brown faculty who are interested in improving their educational research skills. It 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, and emphasizes opportunities for hands-on activities and active participation, so as to maximize the applicability of the workshop principles.

    • Data Management and Preparing for Statistical Consultation
    • Formulating Research Questions and Designing Studies
    • Hypothesis-Driven Research
    • Measuring Educational Outcomes with Reliability and Validity
    • Introduction to Qualitative Data Collection Methods
    • Program Evaluation and Evaluation Research
    • Questionnaire Design and Survey Research
    • Searching and Evaluating the Medical Education Literature
    • Scholarly Writing: Publishing Medical Education Research

    Workshop descriptions can be found on the AAMC MERC website .

    Certificate achievement requires completion of six workshops of the participant’s choosing.

    All nine of the medical education research workshops are being made available free of charge to Brown faculty. Those interested in receiving a MERC Certificate must complete six workshops and pay a certificate fee of $100. This program is unfortunately ineligible for CME credit.

    Information about session dates, and registration for one or more sessions (up to nine), can be found here . If you experience difficulty accessing the google registration form, please email [email protected]
