iMERR conducts high-impact scientific research to improve health care through evidence-based medical education. iMERR carries out research in medical education in the broadest sense ranging from fundamental to applied research covering the continuum of medical education, from prospective students to experienced health care professionals.
To achieve our main goal, we carry out research on three main topics:
- Clinical reasoning
Making sure that future doctors learn to diagnose the patient in the right way.
- Selection, assessment and student performance
Enabling all (future) students to become part of a capable, diverse, and healthy workforce.
- Technology-enhanced instructional design
Helping future doctors to learn more effectively through new educational technology.
