Abstract Body: Conducting research related to curriculum content, pedagogy, structure, and competencies has been limited for years by the manner in which the research had to be conducted: surveys, literature reviews, and small studies at selected schools. While this has not prevented excellent work from being done, it has been difficult to do large scale research due survey return rates, limited literature, and the logistics for multi-institutional projects. The AAMC Curriculum Inventory has been collecting data from 85 percent of US medical schools for three years, and the 2015-2016 participation rate is 92 percent. This opens up a new opportunity for large-scale projects, and a Research Group has been convened to review the data to determine what types of research projects might be conducted, areas where additional data is necessary, and other data sources that could complement or expand CI data. That group has developed several projects that they will be conducting over the next few years. This session will provide attendees the opportunity to see an overview of the data that has been collected and to participate in discussions about individual medical school research interests and how the CI might support those interests. Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: 1. Review Curriculum Inventory Data 2. Discuss medical education research projects the CI can / cannot support 3. Develop medical education research ideas 4. Collaborate with potential partners on medical education research projects Schedule: Welcome and Introduction of Presenters and Topic: 5 mins Curriculum Inventory Data Overview: 5 mins Small Group Discussion: 20 mins *Is there additional data that the CI should collect? *What types of research projects can the CI support? *What types of research projects do schools need to support their curriculum efforts? *How does your school use the CI for benchmarking, CQI, curriculum review/renewal, and accreditation? Reports Back / Large Group Discussion: 10 mins Wrap-Up / Collaboration Opportunities: 5 mins *Wrap-up includes explanation of the resources available to assist researchers such as the MERC workshops, WGEA grant, etc. Presenters: Terri Cameron, MA, Director of Curriculum Programs, AAMC Terri Cameron has been presenting and publishing about use of curriculum management systems in medical school curricula for nearly two decades. She has trained schools to use a national curriculum management system, and has worked with schools locally to help them define the criteria for system selection and for using systems effectively. She has spent the last five years designing and implementing an international curriculum benchmarking system, the AAMC Curriculum Inventory. Jorie Colbert-Getz, Phd, MS, Assistant Dean of Assessment and Evaluation, University of Utah School of Medicine Dr. Colbert-Getz has over 20 publication in medical education and has led workshops on development of research/scholarship projects. Before joining the University of Utah School of Medicine she was the Director of Assessment for Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine where she managed the Student Outcomes Research Data Warehouse, which linked all pre-matriculation, school level, and post-graduation data. She is currently the Society of Directors of Research in Medical Education (SDRME) representative for the AAMC Curriculum Inventory Research Group. Arianne Teherani, PhD, University of California- San Francisco Dr. Teherani is professor of medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine and educational researcher in the Center for Faculty Educators in the UCSF School of Medicine.
