Office of Education Scholarship

The Office of Education Scholarship

As academic physicians, it is our responsibility to examine what and how we teach, and contribute to the larger understanding of medical education. 

The Office of Education Scholarship (OES) was established to support capacity building for DFCM faculty and staff in the area of education scholarship. Our mandate is two-fold: to coordinate and support education scholarship activities, and to advance education scholarship across the DFCM’s programs. 

The OES is a source of knowledge, guidance and mentorship in scholarly activities related to teaching and education in family medicine.  Under the leadership of Dr. Risa Freeman, our faculty work with individuals, leaders, programs and teaching sites. We can help you take a question through the scholarly process to a stage where the results of your work can be shared with a peer group. We can support and help build your own capacity to engage in your everyday work in a scholarly manner.

The key OES strategic goals are to develop a community of practice, to build education scholarship capacity, and to enable a departmental culture of recognition and support through valuing and investing in education scholarship activities.
