The 26th Annual IAMSE Meeting will feature a host of new sessions throughout the entire conference. One of our first-time focus sessions is Enhancing Your Professional Development Through Publication. This course will be given Tuesday, June 7, 2022 from 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM and will be led by our partners in the Association for Study in Medical Education (ASME) Sandra Nicholson and Kim Walker.
Publishing is increasingly important to academics working in medical education as a means to disseminate their practice and seek external validation of their own professional development. Currently, a successful publication track record in appropriate scientific journals is used as a marker of academic rigor and frequently features within promotion criteria. However, we argue that high-quality publications in appropriate journals and books are more than steps to promotion. The skills required to develop and write for publication alongside understanding what constitutes a high-calibre manuscript are essential medical education scholarship credentials.
