University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

Led by:

Patricia O’Sullivan, EdD

One goal of scholarship in health professions education is disseminating your work to others. A first step is producing an abstract, which may be a short description of work that is published, or a summary of scholarly work submitted for purposes of selection for presentation at a conference. A related skill is critiquing abstracts. This involves recognizing the issues related to the quality of the education research, and formulating a well written review to aid the researcher in revising. During this workshop, you will receive orientation and coaching from experienced abstract reviewers so that you can refine your skills and increase your level of contribution to the education scholarship community.

NOTE: This is a hands-on session and you will be writing actual reviews for a conference, with access to a review-writing coach for each. You will be assigned abstracts to review during the workshop.

During this session, participants will:

Review characteristics and expectations of an abstract in the field of educational scholarship.
Develop a critique and discuss it in a group.
Complete reviews and critiques for assigned real abstracts using an online review form.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

Identify elements in an abstract to consider in critiquing the content.
Write scholarly critiques of actual abstracts being selected for a conference.
