Application for Honors Scholars AY23 is closed
See Below for Seminar Schedule
WHAT is Stanford Health Professions Education and Scholarship? The Stanford Health Professions Education and Scholarship (formerly known as CTSS) is a year-long faculty development program in medical education, designed to introduce clinical educators to fundamental concepts in education. The seminars are high-yield, relevant, and interactive, providing practical tips for bedside teaching, curriculum development, and education research. This Program is a joint collaboration between multiple departments at the School of Medicine, administered by the Evaluation and Instructional Development Department.
It is structured with monthly seminars, usually on the first Wednesday of the month. Seminars are on topics of curriculum development and research methods in medical education. The Stanford Health Professions Education and Scholarship Program is an interprofessional and interdisciplinary community of educators that draws upon collegiality and mentorship to create, deploy, and evaluate your teaching/education project. This works best if you have a project to anchor your work through the seminars.
WHAT is the Honors Scholars Certificate Program? This is our medical education certificate program. Those who apply detail a project to work on and attend 7 seminars in one year (or 10 in two years). These scholars present their projects at either the annual conference or at the last session in June. They will be asked to discuss projects in small groups. More information and guidelines.
WHO Can Attend the Seminars? All are welcome to attend/audit our seminar series: faculty, fellows, residents, students, and staff with an interest in medical education. This is an interdisciplinary medical education community for those in and around Stanford to support scholarship and curricula relating to the clinical environment. Those affiliated with Stanford are welcome.

Qualitative Methods: How to Analyze Open-Ended Survey Questions
We often gather qualitative data in our surveys, and then wonder "how can I systematically analyze these questions"? In this session, we will explore analytic approaches to qualitative survey data, consider how to themes and/or counts will answer your research questions, and discuss how to apply to your research study. Bring your surveys and medical education ideas as we delve into how to address qualitative survey questions!
By the end of this session, you will be able to:
- Discuss preliminary analytic considerations
- Describe common analytic approaches to qualitative analysis
- Compare and contrast content and thematic analysis approaches for survey questions
- Practice doing content or thematic analysis
