Medical Education Research

The Stanford Center for Medical Education Research and Innovation (SCeMERI), under the leadership of Dr. Clarence Braddock (Professor of Medicine, Associate Dean of Undergraduate and Graduate Medical Education), was launched and fully staffed in fall 2012. The establishment of the center is part of a broader medical education reform effort by the medical school, addressing concerns such as excessive amount of time to complete medial training and needed improvements in physicians' bedside skills.

  1. Research, Scholarship, and Innovation,
  2. Faculty Development,
  3. Evaluation,
  4. Instructional Design

The goals of the center are:
