Students will learn about health science pedagogical methods and how they may develop into effective clinical instructors. From there, students will examine how to assess teaching effectiveness, student learning, and knowledge gains through an introduction to education research. Students will develop a foundational knowledge of basic education research methodologies and will be introduced to the medical education scholarship literature.
Students will participate onsite at the Bloomington campus. Completion of the scholarly project could be done remotely.
Curriculum and Timeline
Students completing the Medical Education concentration fulfill the same core curriculum as students in other concentrations. The didactic components provide a strong academic and experiential foundation in medical education research methodologies and scholarship literature that will be vital for completion of the core curriculum project and product. *Please note that Pedagogical Methods in the Health Sciences begins in January 2021, which means, if accepted, the commitment form will need to be returned no later than December 1st, 2020 to begin the concentration shortly after.
