RESEARCH

The NYNJ Consortium is active in both scholarly research and presentations on a variety of continuing education topics.   
 
We support member investigation of scholarly topics relevant to clinical education by providing 2 research awards annually, worth up to $1,500 each. Deadlines are November 1 and April 1 of each year. Awards are announced in January and June, respectively. We encourage members to download and review the research funding application below.

The June 2018 Research Award was granted to a project entitled, “Building transformative resilience for success as a clinical education leader: SCCE and DCE perspectives.”
 
For a list of recommended articles on clinical education not written by members of the NYNJ Consortium, please visit our Literature and Other Resources on Clinical Teaching and Learning page.
