    MERC Virtual Workshop Registration and Fees

    Registration is now open for the 2024 virtual Medical Education Research Certificate (MERC) workshop series. The cost for registration is $125 per workshop. You may register for all eight workshops in this series or select a single workshop from our a la carte menu.

    The program is open to all who are interested in improving their educational research skills and is targeted for those with a background in medical education but relatively less experience in conducting educational research. The courses are targeted for clinicians and other educators who desire to learn research skills that will enable collaborative participation in medical education research projects.

    We will continue to offer the entire workshop series on a quarterly basis with the full schedule being announced at the beginning of each calendar year. Please note that the chart below only has the dates for the most recent upcoming series of workshops. You can find the various dates for the rest of the year using the registration links above.
