AAMC Medical Education Research Certificate (MERC) Workshops

Friday, April 8, 2022

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 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. There is no charge to participate, however you must pre-register.
