Educational scholarship refers to any material, product or resource originally developed to fulfill a specific educational purpose that has been successfully peer-reviewed and is subsequently made public through appropriate dissemination for use by others.

 

The AAMC provides two dissemination platforms for peer reviewed scholarly material:

Academic Medicine®

Academic Medicine is one of the AAMC's official, peer-reviewed journals. It serves as an international forum for the exchange of ideas, information, and strategies to address the major challenges facing the academic medicine community as it strives to carry out its missions in the public interest.

Academic Medicine’s areas of focus include: education and training issues across the continuum; health policy as it relates to academic medicine; institutional policy and management; alignment of the workforce with societal needs; the culture and environment of academic medicine; the intersection of academic medicine’s multiple missions; and advancing the field of health professions education research and scholarship.

MedEdPORTAL®

MedEdPORTAL is a MEDLINE-indexed, open-access journal of teaching and learning resources in the health professions published by the Association of American Medical Colleges, in partnership with the American Dental Education Association. MedEdPORTAL publications are stand-alone, complete teaching or learning modules that have been implemented and evaluated with medical or dental trainees or practitioners. Each submission is reviewed by editorial staff and external peer reviewers using a standardized review instrument grounded in the tenets of educational scholarship.
