Alfaisal’s Medical Education Research Course (AMERC) is designed to teach medical students the basic principles of conducting research in medical education. Medical education research is a relatively newer area of research and is growing rapidly in medical schools all over the world. Medical education research projects have emerged as favorite startup research projects for medical students, especially in Alfaisal University. While some students are really good at medical education research and have published high-quality papers in reputed journals, the majority of Alfaisal students seem to discontinue their research projects mostly due to lack of expertise and proper guidance. Therefore, the Undergraduate Research Committee realized that a proper introduction course to the essential principles and methods of conducting research in medical education through a set of workshops was necessary to be established and conducted regularly.

AMERC is a 3-day course comprising of 6 workshops. Each workshop is about 2-3 hours long. By the end of the course, participants will have acquired a framework for understanding and applying essential concepts and principles for research in medical education. For those involved in a medical education research project or interested in starting their own, this course will be highly valuable.

Workshops

  • Workshop A: Formulating a Research Question and Choosing a Study Design
  • Workshop B: Designing an Effective Hypothesis and Testing it
  • Workshop C: Mastering the Techniques of Literature Review Search
  • Workshop D: Evaluating the Medical Literature and Scientific Writing
  • Workshop E: Introduction to Survey and Qualitative Research, and Designing Questionnaires
  • Workshop F: Poster Designing and Abstract Presentations
