ADMSEP Education Scholars Program: Call for Applications

Education scholarship can lead to academic promotion and leadership, both in home institutions and nationally. In order to do this, educational activities and innovations need to be studied. As physicians, we may not know how to make our educational efforts scholarly. The ADMSEP Education Scholars Program is a two-year faculty development program that provides ADMSEP members with foundational knowledge and mentorship in research methodology and scholarship in medical student education. Participants advance in scholarship skills that promote academic achievement and leadership, both in their home institutions and nationally. A Certificate of Excellence in Educational Scholarship is awarded to each Scholar upon completion of the program.

We are currently soliciting applications for our 5th cohort of Education Scholars.
