Peer-assisted Learning through Open Research Education: a Medical Student’s Perspective

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Recently collected data from the Research Committee of the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA) has shown that although 98% of medical students worldwide think that research is important in medical education, less than 20% believe that it is sufficiently addressed in their medical curricula. These numbers have motivated us to create research education resources that are open, free and accessible to anyone who is interested in learning about medical research. We have created Educational Activities, ready-made outcome-based training workshops. Through these workshops, we intend to provide medical students around the globe with an opportunity to learn and explore the field of medical research and overcome challenges faced in research education, such as lack of interest, time and specialized curricula.

In this session we will present our research training workshops and their structure, explain how we created them and how they are being evaluated. Special significance will be given to highlighting their open education aspect, how they are shared among medical students and how our methods could be transferred to other fields.

Our Educational Activities are designed to be facilitated by students for students. They can be used by any student with little research experience as each manual contains theoretical information and resources for the facilitator to teach specific research skills to their peers.

Learning Outcomes: Our attendees will:
Get acquainted with 3 ready-made outcome-based interactive training workshops about medical research developed by International Federation of Medical Students' Associations.
Get insight on the structure and distribution process of our Open Educational Activities.
Critically reflect on the role of peer-assisted education as a part of Open Ed.
Analyze how openly accessible peer education can increase the learning experience of medical students within research education.
