My first year with MERIT (McMaster Education Research, Innovation and Theory Program) has been exciting and challenging. With the launch of a new name, our community has undergone a number of changes. Of course, we stand on more than 40 years of internationally recognized health professions education research, dating back to our origins as the Program for Educational Development.
Conducting world-renowned health professions education scholarship is a core goal of MERIT. The second goal of MERIT speaks to growing a community of practice. Our aim is to engage faculty from across Health Sciences who are involved in education scholarship.
