    Do you want to standardize the data you collect so it can be easily shared with colleagues and other researchers? Have you been awarded a grant that requires the use of common data elements? Do you assist researchers with the data research management lifecycle? If any of these scenarios sound familiar, this course is for you!

    Through live demonstrations and hands-on exercises, this course will introduce you to common data elements (CDEs) and the NIH Common Data Elements Repository (CDE-R). The course begins with an in-depth introduction to what CDEs are and examples of how researchers are already using them. Then, you’ll see how to search the repository and practice searching on your own. Subject matter experts will be in attendance to answer your questions.

  • IJMS World Conference of Medical Student Research

    Location:
    Online, Online - synchronous

    Description

    Saturday, November 12, 2022 at 7 a.m. EDT

    The Internal Journal of Medical Students (IJMS) has worked for a long, uninterrupted time with a primary aim to serve as the chief diffusion platform for early-career scientists in medicine. This expands beyond the routine publication of manuscripts to empowering medical students' engagement in research and providing a platform for them to their display their work of the same.

    Keeping the spirit of nurturing medical student research worldwide alive, IJMS has decided to organize an online Research Conference where medical students and recent graduates (up to 3 years of certification) can present their research in front of an international audience.

    The IJMS Research Conference organization team strongly believes in the importance of medical students / recently graduated physicians in medical research. The IJMS, therefore, through the upcoming conference, provides the opportunity for the aforementioned to have visibility and peer valuation of their work. As medical students gather together and share their research experiences, the hope is that there will be consequential increased engagement in research among medical students and a step forward towards the global empowerment of medical students with research skills and competence. To the best of our knowledge, there are no international research conferences for medical students nor one organized and run by a medical student organization; the upcoming conference aims to change this issue.
