AAIM Medical Education Research Committee

The AAIM Medical Education Research Committee (MERC) is charged with developing resources and tools that support AAIM membership in conducting medical education research. The committee seeks to empower and assist AAIM members in bringing their ideas to fruition, both for publication and for meaningful impact at their home institutions and the AAIM community.
Committee members can assist in any of the following ways:
  • Clarifying study questions/goals
  • Implementing a proposed intervention
  • Choosing a method to assess impact or outcomes
  • Interpreting impacts of an outcome
  • Identifying or soliciting resources
  • Determining how or where this research can be presented or published
  • Ethical concerns
  • Guidance on literature searches
  • Guidance on type of subspecialist that may be able to provide clinical/scientific support
If you seek assistance with your scholarly project, fill out the consultation request form to provide MERC details about your project. Requests will be addressed by a committee member with expertise in the subject area. Please expect a response within six weeks. Should you need assistance sooner, please include a note on the form.
While committee members seek to offer advice, guidance, and mentorship, they are unable to provide statistical analysis or data interpretation.
