Center for Research in Medical Education & Health Care

The Center for Research in Medical Education and Health Care provides support to the faculty in evaluating the knowledge, skills, and professionalism of students throughout the MD curriculum. It provides information to Sidney Kimmel Medical College administration concerning key indicators used to evaluate the effectiveness of policies related to admissions, curriculum, and students' academic progress. The Center continues to receive external support for its health services and policy related research. Center faculty collaborate in scholarly work with other SKMC faculty and publish and present medical education and health services research projects in US and international journals and at scientific meetings.


Faculty and staff have qualifications and professional experience in biostatistics, psychometrics, medical education assessment, evaluation of quality of health care, development and application of severity of illness methods, risk adjustment, health care financing, and institutional research. The Center combines service to the Jefferson community with a broad spectrum of  research studies and other externally-funded projects as described in our annual report (PDF).
