The Medical Education Research Centre aims to:
- encourage and facilitate staff and students to conduct research;
- disseminate research findings to the academic world and beyond (i.e. professional and general audiences)
- build on our established track record and move forward into international forums;
- enhance the research environment through developing student capacity, by increasing the recruitment of PGR and Masters students within the ambit of the research centre;
- contribute to the research environment;
- advance the impact agenda; and
- assist members in continuing to generate income for the University through bids for project work and consultancy roles.
We have established a successful track record in bidding for external project funding from a range of local and national commissioners. Outputs include reports to stakeholders and policymakers, presentation of project findings at national and international conferences, and dissemination through publications in peer-reviewed journals. Strong areas of research concern the evaluation of programmes of education, evaluation of support and management structures and remediation and innovation in medical education.
