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 at all sites within the Mount Sinai Health System. A call for abstracts is opened in January each year.

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.

Abstracts are anonymously reviewed by a selection committee using nationally established criteria for education scholarship. Each year, we select four Blue Ribbon Winners. Authors of the top two abstracts are invited to present their work at Medical Education Grand Rounds. 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.
