In 2023, Medical Science Educator, the journal of the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE), will be publishing a special journal section dedicated to the topic of:
Health Science Students as Future Educators:
How to Support and Encourage Them
In this section, the journal would like to explore initiatives from around the world to motivate their students to become future educators.
During their careers as physicians or biomedical science researchers, many will at some point in time get involved in teaching health sciences students. Still, most students graduate without formal training in education. In some schools students can voluntarily get involved in educational activities such as peer teaching, educational committees, and education projects, while in other places mandatory student-as-teacher programs are being offered to teach students the principles of classroom and small-group teaching techniques, and to introduce them to health sciences education scholarship.
The Editorial Board of Medical Science Educator is currently soliciting article submissions to inform the readership about initiatives to support and encourage students to develop as educators. See our website www.medicalscienceeducator.org for a more detailed description of these article types. All submissions will be peer-reviewed in our regular review process. Accepted manuscripts will be clustered together into a special section in issue 33(6), or will be published in one of the regular issues afterwards.
Manuscripts to be considered for these sections must be submitted by May 1st, 2023 through our online submission system at www.medicalscienceeducator.org. In your cover letter, please refer to the topic “Students as Future Educators” to indicate that you would like to be included in the special section. See our journal website for the Instructions for Authors.
We look forward to receiving your submissions.
