There are many more heroes working in meat processing plants, food stores, delivery services, and pharmacies (to name just a few),
The principal investigator (PI) meeting is a well-established (and expensive) tradition in the pharmaceutical industry. And, in our era of global programs, you might need to host multiple PI meetings: one for the Americas, one in Europe, one in Asia. Yet, no matter how many meetings you host, you will
One of the best analogies on learning that I ever learned came in a rather unlikely place.
I had just walked from my car to meet a PGA Top 100 golf instructor (John Dunigan), he was going to help me work through some issues with my game. 15 minutes into the
Despite the recognition that educating healthcare students in patient safety is essential, changing already full curricula can be challenging.

Using senior students as peer educators to deliver practice-based education
There is rapidly increasing pressure to employ social media in medical education, but a review of the literature demonstrates that its value and role are uncertain.
To determine if medical educators have a conceptual framework that informs their use of social media and whether this framework can be mapped to learning
We measured the long-term retention of knowledge gained through selected American Academy of Neurology annual meeting courses and compared the effects of repeated quizzing (known as test-enhanced learning) and repeated studying on that retention.
Participants were recruited from 4 annual meeting courses. All participants took a pretest. This randomized, controlled trial
Look at the definition of differentiation—in terms of what it is and is not—in this infographic to further your learning from the book.
Post it in your office, share it with your colleagues, or circulate it on social media to keep best practices for differentiating instruction to meet the needs of
Chunking refers to the strategy of breaking down information into bite-sized pieces so the brain can more easily digest new information. The reason the brain needs this assistance is because working memory, which is where we manipulate information, holds a limited amount of information at one time.
Why We Chunk
While Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) has long occurred informally in medical education, in the past ten years, there has been increasing international interest in formally organised PAL, with many benefits for both the students and institutions. We conducted a systematic review of the literature to establish why and how PAL
To examine the role of classroom-based learning in graduate medical education through the lens of academic half days (AHDs) by exploring residents' perceptions of AHDs' purpose and relevance and the effectiveness of teaching and learning in AHDs.
The authors invited a total of 186 residents in three programs (internal medicine, orthopedic
