Medical Education Journal Club

Nancy Halliday, PhD has organized a medical education journal club and invites you to participate.  Below is a description of the journal club and the fall schedule.

Fridays at 12:00
Current Location: BSEB 238
Each semester there is a medical education journal club/seminar course that is required for students pursuing the Medical Education Track Ph.D. offered through the OU Norman ILAC (Instructional Leadership & Academic Curriculum) program. This seminar is also open to anyone interested in medical education/medical education research. Below is an outline of dates and topics. We meet at noon each Friday (bring your own lunch). We plan to use the first 2 meetings for each month exploring the 4 educational themes noted below. The other dates/topics are listed as TBD (To Be Determined) because our goal is to have participants in the seminar series choose a research paper/topic and lead the discussion for those days.  In the first few sessions, we will be looking for volunteer leaders!  I hope you will consider joining us for these informal sessions.
