MedEdPORTAL Public Health Collection of free, online resources

The online destination for identifying, developing and sharing resources aimed at improving the public health content in medical education

MedEdPORTAL's Public Health Collection supports the goals of APIH to share and promote public health education resources to enhance the teaching of population health concepts.

The two options for submission to the MedEdPORTAL Public Health Collection include: Publications and the iCollaborative, which represent peer-reviewed curricula and effective practices and innovations.

Publications

An online repository of peer reviewed, classroom tested teaching resources that adheres to the full standards of professional scholarship guidelines. Submissions are first vetted for copyright and patient privacy compliance and then subjected to scrutiny by independent reviewers using standardized peer review processes grounded in the tenants of scholarship. MedEdPORTAL publications are on par with traditional scholarly works in the support of faculty tenure and advancement decisions and published authors receive a formal citation for their accepted publication. Teaching materials that enhance the curriculum may take many forms: tutorials, case studies, simulations, etc.

The key characteristics of a teaching module published in MedEdPORTAL are:
• Serves as full, stand-alone teaching/learning activity;
• Includes educational objectives and outcome-based measures;
• Is relevant and replicative for other faculty

Do you have a classroom-tested health education tool with clear learning objectives and instructions for implementation? Submit to Publications

iCollaborative

A centralized online platform for collaboration. With open access, iCollaborative offers academic medical institutions a mechanism to share information and serve as an open forum for the exchange of ideas and best practices for transforming health care education and delivery.

Do you want to share a new and innovative resource, approach, or strategy spanning healthcare education, delivery, and research? Submit to iCollaborative
