Research metrics measure the impact of scholarly works. Various metrics have been developed to track the impact of individual articles, authors, and journals.

The Research Metrics guide will introduce you to many of these measures and how to apply them to your work.


Med Ed Research Grants

Faculty Development has compiled two medical education research resources for you which were originally done for the Medical Education Research and Scholarship Day.  You can refer to both these documents – information on medical education grants available and the journals you can consider to submit your papers for publication.  If you have suggestions on additions to these documents – please contact medicinefaculty.development@usask.ca.  We want these documents to be ever-greened - keeping them up-to-date and relevant and appreciate your input.

Check out the hard copies of resources we have in Faculty Development easily!    We have a FD “Library“ now which you can scan online to see if we have titles of books or medical education articles you might be interested in.  These are available to be borrowed by contacting the medicinefaculty.development@usask.ca.

We are happy for these resources to be used by individuals in the College of Medicine or other Health Professions, anyone participating in our FD programming, as well as to have them go out to distributed teaching sites in SK.   Go to https://cmfdlibrary.librarika.com/.  If there are great titles related to medical education that you think we should have, let us know.  We welcome your suggestions.

These books and reference materials are kept in the Faculty Development Resource room (Room 319) which you are also welcome to visit.  Come see Amy Winik in room 318 at St. Andrews College.
