RASME Masterclass

This one-day Masterclass offers the chance to look at the topic in depth. Whilst some participants may find it beneficial to complete the RESME three-day course first, this is not a requirement and the RASME Masterclass may be taken separately from RESME.

Experimental Studies in Medical Education: from theory to practice

How do we make our experimental research count? How do we make sure we ask meaningful experimental research questions? When reporting our study findings, how do we avoid mistakes and limit the potential for rejection by medical education journals? These are some of the questions we discuss in this course on experimental research methods. Experimental research is paramount for developing and refining theory and advancing the field of medical education.

However, too many experimental studies in the #meded literature lack the methodological rigor that characterizes research conducted within traditional disciplines (e.g., psychology, biomedicine), affecting the trustworthiness of the evidence produced. Furthermore, many medical education researchers struggle when using theory to construct research questions, to choose experimental designs and data analyses, and to integrate their findings with existing theoretical frameworks.
