MedEd Grand Rounds: Behind the Scenes--How to get scholarly work done when you have no time

Zoom information will be sent to participants the week prior to the session.  Note that this session will be recorded.

Session starts at 12:00noon (PT) / 3:00pm (ET)

Time is always challenging. Two junior scholars will be presenting their quandaries with how to do scholarship as a clinician. They will get tips from experienced educational researchers particularly about time for reading, writing, advocating for oneself and use of timelines. The session is designed as a conversation addressing questions from the audience and also using the audience to crowd-source additional good ideas.
