A Roadmap for Publishing Health Professions Education Scholarship - March 9

Over the past decade, the number of venues for publishing health professions education (HPE) scholarship has grown. With this increase has come a variety of publication types ranging from one-page Last Pages to comprehensive Literature Reviews as well as a number of excellent resources to help scholars write up their work effectively for specific publication types. 

In this webinar, the speakers will introduce participants to the evolving landscape of publishing in HPE, provide examples of how to think through the available publishing opportunities, and highlight some resources authors can use to prepare their work for submission. 

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to: 

  1. Describe a variety of dissemination venues for publishing scholarship in HPE; 
  2. Select appropriate publication types for their scholarship; and 
  3. Identify resources available to guide their publication preparation. 

This webinar is one part in a four-part series related to fostering scholarship in medical education offered by the AAMC.
