Educational Research Network

This group aims to support those in the Dalhousie University Faculty of Medicine who support learner research projects in New Brunswick (medical students and residents/fellows). There is also a focus on the evaluation of the transfer or acquisition of knowledge, attitudes, or skills in any topic relevant to human health among any type of learner, including health professionals, students in the health professions, and patients.
