2014 Education Research Day Slideshow


Education Research Day

Education Research Day is an annual event, held each spring, that showcases outstanding medical education research and innovative education programming by our faculty, house-staff and students.

The goals of Education Research Day are to:

  1. Highlight and disseminate the creative and exciting work in educational research and innovative curriculum development taking place every day at Mount Sinai and its affiliate institutions.
  2. Provide a forum for educators to learn from and collaborate with each other.
  3. Prepare authors for regional and national presentation and dissemination of their scholarly educational work.

The Educational Research Day Selection Committee receives approximately 40 abstract submissions each year from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai faculty, house-staff and students. Abstracts are anonymously reviewed by a selection committee using nationally established criteria for education scholarship.

Each year, we select two to four Blue Ribbon Winners, the best of whom are funded to present their work at the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Medical Colleges. The selection committee also provides each author with individualized feedback to help them progress toward dissemination of their work at the regional and national level.

We follow the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Guidelines for Authorship and Contributorship. Please follow these guidelines as you prepare your scholarly educational work:

  • Authorship credit should be based on 1) substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; 2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and 3) final approval of the version to be published. Authors should meet conditions 1, 2, and 3.
  • Acquisition of funding, collection of data, or general supervision of the research group alone does not constitute authorship.
  • All persons designated as authors should qualify for authorship, and all those who qualify should be listed.
  • Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the content.
