Medical Education Research Certificate (MERC) 

MERC is a longitudinal program in partnership with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) consisting of six workshops intended for clinicians and other educators who desire to expand their scope of research skills to facilitate collaborative participation in medical education research projects. Through MERC, CLIME is creating a community of like-minded medical educators who share a common language and research repertoire allowing for ongoing collaboration on educational projects across departments.
