Collaboration of Researchers, Educators, Scholars & Teachers (CREST)
Welcome to CREST – a Collaboration of Researchers, Educators, Scholars and Teachers in the Department of Medicine. CREST is co-led by Ryan Brydges and Shiphra Ginsburg, with significant input from the attending faculty and residents. Our main goal is to foster creative collaborations in education scholarship and research throughout the department.
Through regular monthly meetings during the academic year, we aim to build upon our terrific community of scholars interested in education, and to enhance the quality and quantity of our scholarly output. Each meeting usually starts with a "formal" presentation given by a local or visiting scholar on a timely education scholarship and research topic. The meeting also includes ample time for the constructive exchange of ideas, formation of collaborations, troubleshooting of projects, and the opportunity for our members to present 'Works in Progress (WIPs).'
