Center for Education Research & Scholarship


The Department of Pediatrics Center for Education Research and Scholarship (CERS) supports research and scholarship in health professions education and creates a culture of collaboration among educators across the department. 

Education Research and Scholarship​

The center has developed a growing community of education scholars in the Department of Pediatrics. We meet weekly to share updates and gather to build skills and expertise for doing education scholarship. Anyone interested in education is welcome to join us.

Services and Support

CERS will facilitate and offer guidance and support to faculty, fellows, residents, and students in their medical education research and scholarship efforts, fostering a community of education scholars and, by doing so, align with Medical Education’s vision of being recognized leaders in medical education.

To best serve the community of medical education researchers in the Department of Pediatrics, we have identified the following areas that have a need for support and guidance: 

  • Support for doing research and writing grants in education
  • Faculty development: Equipping faculty to do research & scholarship in education
  • Curriculum development and innovation: Creating new approaches to education
  • Assessment and evaluation: Evaluating the education we do and making plans for further improvement
  • Teaching and learning: Studying education and developing innovative approaches
