Medical Education

February 2018

The past few months have been of great productivity for the OSR medical education group. We began by restructuring the roles of the OSR Medical Education Committee composed of the OSR National Delegate for Medical Education and Medical Education Regional Delegates. To improve collaboration, productivity, and organization we set specific responsibilities, tasks, and goals. Additionally, the OSR Medical Education Committee has been working hard to formally establish our role in the different medical education sections at the AAMC such as educational affairs, professional development, and undergraduate medical education.

Three significant advancements include the connections with regional Groups on Educational Affairs, regular OSR Medical Education Committee meetings, and initiatives to highlight regional medical education projects. Furthermore, we have improved communication with the section on Undergraduate Medical Education and section on Continuing Professional Development. We hope to continue to improve our integration with AAMC Medical Education while solidifying our roles as the OSR Medical Education Committee. This means that we can help connect you with experienced staff and educators in other parts of the AAMC to help support your Medical Education projects.

Currently, we have three project proposals under review and one project proposal under development. Our submitted project proposals include projects focused on increasing the amount of scholarly writing opportunities in areas of OSR National Priorities, showcasing medical education research or projects, and creating a safe place to discuss medical education concerns while also updating OSR and non-OSR students on national projects.

From our regional inquiries through the OSR Listserv we have learned about medical education projects led by OSR leaders. Particularly, we learned about a great project at the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin. Where an interactive learning tool to help first-year medical students learn autonomic receptors was created (contact:
Future goals are focused on planning and organizing the “Learners Leading Learners: The Student Programming Showcase” session, further developing our project proposals, and learning more about local medical education projects across the nation. Our next meeting as a Medical Education Committee is schedule to take place early March, however, we are continuously communicating and working hard to represent our peers.
