Consulting and Collaboration
In addition to conducting educational research and scholarship, the Office of Educational Scholarship serves as a resource to the UNC School of Medicine community, providing consultation and collaboration opportunities in the following areas:
- Medical education research: Provides guidance with quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods study design, questionnaire development and validation (e.g., to measure knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors), data collection, entry and management, access to and merging of large databases, and consultation on appropriate venues for dissemination of education scholarship.
- Data Preparation: The Office of Medical Student Education consults with investigators wishing to obtain data from the UNC School of Medicine data warehouse.
- Evaluation: Consults on development, implementation, and evaluation of educational programs. This includes qualitative research planning for data collection and analysis, development and validation of new questionnaires, and training in the conduct of educational and program evaluation methods and procedures.
- Project Dissemination: Offers recommendations for journals that may be best suited for the projects. Additionally, the Office of Educational Scholarship provides editing assistance with manuscripts. If funding is needed for conference attendance and/or publication fees, we can offer guidance completing the requests.
For educational research consultations, please use the Academy of Educators Consultation form.
