This Scholarly Concentration is part of our overarching Scholarly Concentration Program\, an elective opportunity for our students to develop an independent scholarly product. The presentation will start with a brief program description and then focuses on the goals of the Biomedical Research Concentration regarding teaching scientific research skills. We will stress the specific challenges we have encountered developing this concentration and our experiences trying to address them\, describing in some detail some of the more recently implemented measures. One of the major challenges to be discussed is achieving sustained student commitment to the concentration throughout all four years of medical school. In this regard we will discuss our new senior student mentorship program. We will further discuss how this elective inquiry-based curriculum influences the required core pre-clerkship curriculum The presentation will conclude with preliminary data attempting to measure the impact of this scientific-inquiry based curriculum on continued scholarship in the practice of medicine.PresenterIngrid Bahner\, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Molecular Medicine at the University of South Florida\, Morsani College of MedicineQuestionsFor questions regarding IAMSE or to view past webinars\, please visit URL: LOCATION:3200 Grand Avenue\, Des Moines\, IA\, 50312\, United States GEO:41.58412;-93.662138 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=3200 Grand Avenue Des Moines IA 50312 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=3200 Grand Avenue:geo:-93.662138,41.58412 CATEGORIES:CME regular scheduled series,Continuing Medical Education,Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine,Doctor of Physical Therapy,Doctor of Podiatric Medicine,Master of Science in Anatomy,Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences,Master of Science in Health Care Administration,Master of Science in Public Health,Professional development,Research,Students ORGANIZER;CN="Continuing%20Medical%20Education" END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
