  • GMS HS 706: Introduction to Research Methods in Health Professions Education
    Introduction to Research Methods in Health Professions Education (HS 706) is designed to introduce health professions education (HSE) students to the fundamentals of research design for education. The goal of the course is to familiarize HSE students with the process of identifying research problems, forming research questions, reviewing, critiquing, and summarizing research as a tool for better understanding and influencing HSE practice and policy. We will explore the fundamentals of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research, how to interpret and present data, how to adhere to ethical principles that guide educational research, and how to develop a small-scale research proposal of your own. In short, this course is about learning to become a good consumer and producer of educational research. Course instructor approval needed. Sum2 semester.
  • GMS HS 707: Evaluation & Assessment for Health Professions Educators
    This course is designed to provide MS HSE students with an understanding of basic principles of measurement and assessment as it relates to both research and instruction. In this course we discuss how to use, interpret and construct valid and reliable tests. We will examine standardized and classroom assessments as well as explore how accreditation requirements (e.g., ACGME) impact teaching and learning in Health Professions Education. Class will be a mix of lecture, discussions, group work, and in-class activities. Generally, I will prepare lecture materials but the direction of the course depends largely on student interests and questions. Course instructor approval needed. Spring semester.
