Twenty-eight abstracts were submitted; after peer review of the abstracts (4 reviewers scored each abstract), the top scoring 25 posters were selected for presentation. There were 11 abstracts on research related to undergraduate medical education (UME), 14 abstracts on research related to graduate medical education (GME) and 2 abstracts related to the Academy of Distinguished Educators (ADE). Several of the abstracts described results from medical education research projects that had been funded by the first round of ADE medical education research grants and several other abstracts described work funded by the AInnovations in GME@ grant award program.

The Poster Session was kicked off by a reception on Monday evening, March 13, 2006, from 5:00-7:00 PM in the Claude Moore Health Science Library. Dean Garson gave brief remarks, which included the announcement that the School of Medicine was launching an Institute for Medical Education Research.

The goals of the reception and the poster session were to highlight the medical education research currently being conducted at the School of Medicine and to increase wider interest in medical education research among the faculty by illustrating examples of good medical education research, by publicizing a series of Faculty Development Sessions dealing with medical education research, the design of questionnaires for collecting data and the preparation of grant proposals, in preparation for the 3rd round of ADE medical education research grants (due April 14, 2006).
