MedEdPORTAL is an open-access journal of teaching and learning resources in the health professions published by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), in partnership with the American Dental Education Association. MedEdPORTAL publications are stand-alone, complete teaching or learning modules that have been implemented and evaluated with medical or dental trainees or practitioners. Each submission is reviewed by editorial staff and external peer reviewers using a standardized review instrument grounded in the tenets of educational scholarship.
MedEdPORTAL complies with the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals. For more information about the ICMJE Recommendations, including the full text of the guidelines and a list of member journals, please visit http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/.
MedEdPORTAL is also affiliated with the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and World Association of Medical Editors (WAME). Both COPE and WAME are membership-based organizations that identify principles of transparency and provide guidance on ethical best practices for scholarly publications.
MedEdPORTAL invites educators to submit generalizable educational materials that have been implemented with target learners with the aim of helping to improve patient care. The learners must include training or practicing physicians or dentists (e.g., professional school, residency, faculty development, continuing professional development) and may include trainees or practitioners across the health professions.
The vision of MedEdPORTAL is to:
- Serve as the premier clearinghouse of high-quality, peer-reviewed health education tools;
- Promote interprofessional collaboration by facilitating the open exchange of educational resources across the health professions; and
- Equip health professionals across the continuum with effective and efficient educational resources to improve patient care.
