Medical Education Literature

Dependable Reviews of Medical Education Research Literature (DR MERL)

A discussion at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Medical Education Research Interest Group (MERIG) on the need for teaching faculty to keep up with the medical education literature was the impetus for DR MERL (Dependable Reviews of Medical Education Research Literature). The initial goal was to disseminate succinct reviews of medical education research to teaching faculty to keep them up-to-date on the most important medical education research. Reach expanded to medical educators throughout the country after receiving endorsement from the Northeast Group on Education Affairs (NEGEA).
