Title: An Educational Timeline: One Library’s Involvement in Undergraduate Medical Education
Objective: To provide medical students with educational interventions at strategic points throughout their undergraduate curriculum.
Methods: Librarians at a large midwestern university are heavily integrated in the first three years of the undergraduate medical school curriculum. The librarians first meet the students early in the first (M1) year to provide two training sessions, one optional and another mandatory. These early sessions provide students with a basic orientation to the information environment at the university, as well as an introduction to fundamental search functionality of PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, and select psychosocial and e-book resources. The librarians provide another instruction session on advanced PubMed during the second (M2) year. In this session, the librarians also introduce students to evidence-based resources, such as Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, National Guidelines Clearinghouse, and ACP-PIER. During the third (M3) year, the librarians continue the evidence-based resource thread by revisiting systematic review and practice guideline resources, while adding instruction on drug (Micromedex) and point-of-care (Dynamed) resources. This poster will outline the current information resource curriculum at the institution and describe the goals and plans for future involvement, which potentially includes two additional courses.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
