Enhancing Your Professional Development Through Publication
Presenters: Sandra Nicholson and Kim Walker – ASME
Date and Time: Tuesday, June 7, 2022, 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM

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.
