Day Professor of Biology 6:45–7:45 - Poster Presentations and Reception 7:45–8:30 - Reception 8:30 pm - Adjourn Program Description: Questions regarding medical education scholarship are common. As faculty, we often struggle to incorporate scholarly work into our teaching practice. Time and lack of knowledge are challenges. While we know that the education process is essential to medical training, it is often difficult to obtain support and recognition for our efforts. This keynote address will focus on answering common questions regarding medical education scholarship: What resources are available to support my educational scholarship? How can I think about scholarship in the context of my teaching responsibilities? How can I get started with my writing? How do I know my work is scholarly? How can I convince my colleagues that my educational work is scholarly? What journals should I consider for my educational scholarship? This session will qualify as one of the Program’s Seminars in Medical Education. Learning Objectives: 1. Define educational scholarship 2. Identify resources for medical education scholarship 3. Determine appropriate educational journals for scholarly writing Credit Designation The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits(TM). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
