The Medical Education Research and Evaluation Group came to a consensus today concerning next year's agenda. One of the primary activities that we will focus on as a group is publishing.

We have invited, Chris Candler, MD, the MedEdPortal editor, to speak to us about publishing our work in this medium. MedEdPortal is a new online publishing venue provided by the Association of American Medical Colleges. We plan on opening up his talk to Clinical Educators throughout the Medical Center. We have provided his contact information below:

Division of Medical Education
2450 N Street, NW
Washington, DC

Email: ccandler@aamc.org

Senior Associate Dean, Dr. Charles Prober has endorsed this idea and will participate in the presentation. In addition, Dr. Braddock with ask Dr. Candler to provide an overview about MedEdPORTAL to Chairs and/or A&P committees, with the goal of helping academics understand how to evaluate education scholarship.

We will keep you posted as soon as a date is set for his presentation and demonstration.
