Connect with ScholarRx at the 22nd IAMSE Meeting in Las Vegas

ScholarRx is once again proud to be sponsoring and participating in several events at the upcoming IAMSE Annual Conference, June 9-12, at the Green Valley Ranch in Las Vegas.

ScholarRx is a leading provider of medical education and assessment solutions and recently launched a low cost, modular global medical curriculum initiative featuring “bricks” that schools can use to build custom curriculum. Over 15 schools have conducted free pilots using the ScholarRx bricks and the feedback from students and faculty has been overwhelmingly positive. A hematology curriculum collection is available now for pilot evaluation, and materials for the cardiovascular, pulmonary, and renal systems will be available prior to the start of the 2018-19 academic year.

ScholarRx also has a full array of assessment solutions for high stakes exam preparation and program evaluation, including RxSearch for machine learning-powered curriculum search and discovery and a new set of faculty tools to create and publish assessments directly from the platform. We would be happy to demonstrate these exciting new features for you. Please contact matt.harris@scholarrx.com or steve.mirande@scholarrx.com to learn more.

201 – IMPLEMENTING AND EVALUATING A MODULAR, FLEXIBLE, AND CUSTOMIZABLE MEDICAL SCHOOL CURRICULUM

Yun Chu, Frazier Stevenson, Jesse Burk-Rafel, Kristine Krafts, Catherine A. Johnson, and Tao Le

PURPOSE: Curriculum planning challenges for medical educators include limited time, resources, and standardized curricular templates. We describe a low-cost comprehensive repository of medical curricular materials that are student-written and faculty-designed, which can be customized to suit unique institutional curriculum needs. Curriculum bricks address multiple challenges, such as filling in course gaps, creating lectures, and reducing educators’ work burden. Our aim is to create, implement, and validate curriculum bricks through a Kirkpatrick evaluation model at several US medical schools.

We look forward to seeing you there!
