Title: Creating a Formal Service-Oriented Curriculum in Pre-Medical Education -- The QuARMS Experience Author:Suart, Theresa Nowlan; Hastings-Truelove, Amber; Katsoulas, Eleni; Stockley, Denise; Mackenzie, Jennifer Subject:Premedical Students ; Medical Education ; Service Learning ; Foreign Countries ; College Curriculum ; Acceleration (Education) ; Student Experience ; Student Attitudes Description:
In September 2013, the Queen's University Accelerated Route to Medical School (QuARMS), an innovative 2-year premedical curriculum which combines coursework, seminars, fieldwork, and faculty mentorship, was developed. After successful completion of the program, students are eligible to enter medical school. A key aspect of this learning stream is the integrated service-learning aspect which is scaffolded across both years of study and includes in class sessions, community projects, mentoring, and assessment. This paper provides the results of a mixed-methods program evaluation designed to examine students' QuARMS service learning experiences. Overall, students were happy with the service learning component of the program, and indicated that the in-class and experiential service-learning sessions were beneficial. However, students also indicated that they wanted more structure and feedback while working on their projects.

Title: Evaluating the Efficacy of the Education and Training Program of the TCPS 2 Author:Stockley, Denise; Kinderman, Laura; Egan, Rylan; Lam, Chi Yan; Hastings, Amber Subject:Foreign Countries ; Research Methodology ; Researchers ; Ethics ; Policy ; Workshops ; Guides ; Internet ; Seminars ; Program Evaluation ; Program Effectiveness ; Medicine Description:
In 2011, the Secretariat on Responsible Conduct of Research launched a set of educational opportunities to facilitate and enhance the dissemination of TCPS 2, the 2nd edition of the "Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans" (2010), which guides Canadian research ethics. Three educational modalities were implemented to aid participants in developing or refining their ethical understanding and practice: (i) Regional Workshops, which brought together diverse disciplinary perspectives; (ii) the CORE tutorial, which enabled individuals to discover the various aspects and applications of the Policy; and (iii) Webinars, which provided participants with the opportunity to explore deeper dimensions of research ethics. This article reports on the findings of a national program evaluation team which measured the effectiveness of the educational program and provided recommendations for future opportunities.
