An Approach to Publishing Your Medical Education Innovation

Are you ready to share your medical education innovation with the world?  Most medical educators struggle with publishing single institution, single topic innovations.  In this seminar, Dr. Srinivasan will share key concepts in considering if you should publish your work (yes, please share), and how to approach the manuscript preparation and publication process -- including planning for evaluation metrics, considering system impact, and journal selection.  During the seminar, participants will use a structured framework to plan to publish their innovation.

Learning Objectives

  • Utilize objective criteria to determine if your innovation is ready for publication
  • Develop and outline steps to publish your work, meaningfully, within a reasonable publication timeline
