Center for Educational Innovation and Scholarship
The Center for Educational Innovation and Scholarship (CEIS) offers multiple opportunities to enhance medical education, including meetings, grand rounds and workshops.
CEIS holds a monthly “medical education lab” meeting where two people present a medical education research project for discussion and feedback from the group. The lab is interactive, and we welcome projects at any stage from conceptual design to discussions about a publication. Present at the meetings are faculty with experience in medical education research across different departments, including educational methodologists and a biostatistician.
Medical Education Lab Meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month from noon to 1:00 pm. Recent meeting topics have been:

CEIS is committed to supporting educational research and scholarship in medical and graduate education, and works with the HMS Academy to live stream activities, particularly their medical education grand rounds. These are streamed in the Wilkins Conference Room, in collaboration with the Mass General Executive Committee on Teaching and Education (ECOTE).
CEIS runs the AAMC Medical Education Research Certificate Workshops, intended to provide the knowledge necessary to understand the purposes and processes of medical education research, to become informed consumers of the medical education research literature, and to be effective collaborators in medical education research. The program is open to all who are interested in improving their educational research skills. There are nine workshops, each focusing on a key skill or area in educational research. Each workshop is three hours in length. Once six workshops have been completed, the participant qualifies for the Medical Education Research Certificate.
