The Department of Medical Education offers several programs for those who want to learn more about the field of medical education in general, or about particular topics within the broad field.
The Medical Education Scholars Program (MESP) provides an opportunity for competitively selected faculty to study principles of medical education in depth, with the support and direction of department faculty. Throughout the year, MESP offers electives to medical students who are interested in teaching or in pursuing a research program in the field of medical education.
Medical Education Day, offered each spring, gives students, residents and faculty an opportunity to publicize their medical education research – and gives the entire Medical School community an opportunity to learn about others’ work.
The Program in Bioethics focuses on empirical research in bioethics in the areas of healthcare decision-making, health policy and management, and advances in medical science. The program also promotes innovative programs in ethics education.Back to top
