Psychiatry Medical Education Research                 

Posting expires on 03/30/2018

Research Site:
University of MInnesota - Twin Cities

Type of Research:


This opportunity does not have a stipend.

Dr. Nelson and and the teaching track faculty are seeking to provide mentorship for students interested in designing and conducting medical education research. This may take place during a year 3-4 research rotation or as an extra-curricular activity.

Possible options for research include:
Development and testing of evaluation tools
Self-administered curriculum module creation
Adapting residency or student courses to sharable formats
Creation and evaluation of patient education materials
Mapping existing evaluations or curricula to ACGME Milestones in Psychiatry
Poster or manuscript creation related to administrative and leadership initiatives underway within the department of psychiatry.

Most of this type of work could be completed at home. 

For all projects, the student would be listed as an author of the educational scholarship product (possibly first author depending on the originator of the project plan). This is an attractive element of residency applications and an well-suited opportunity for any student interested in medical education.  The student does not need to be an expert in this content area, since the content is being developed by faculty experts. 

Expected time commitment varies with they scope and nature of the project. 

Interested? Kaz Nelson, MD, 612-273-9848,
