Feature Education Innovation
Each month, the Education working group of CAEP’s Academic Section will be providing a Feature Education Innovation (FEI). These feature summaries will highlight initiatives and the education scholarship across Canadian medical schools. We will release them as part of the CAEP Connects at the middle of each month.
Visit the FEI’s page.
Great Evidence in Medical education Summary
Each month, the Education working group of CAEP’s Academic Section will be providing you a Great Evidence in Medical education Summary (GEMeS). This section is designed to highlight key, useful medical education literature that the entire CAEP membership might find useful. We will release them as part of the CAEP Connects at the middle of each month.
