Education for Clinicians in Training

DynaMed™ is committed to encouraging the practice of evidence-based medicine. We work closely with clinical educators to ensure they have access to the most current clinical evidence available so they can so they can maximize the learning experience for students and residents.

DynaMed provides educators with a resource that supports medical education goals, encourages trainees to access the original research, and provides guidance on diagnosis and treatment options while preserving and supporting the essential learning opportunities that educators want to provide.

Residents in all specialties are now expected to conduct scholarly effort during training. The DynaMed Editors are committed to contributing to the medical training of health care professionals by providing scholarly effort opportunities. Residents and students can co-review DynaMed topics with a supervising faculty member who has clinical practice experience.

Residency and allied health care training programs benefit two-fold:

  • Residents and students have the opportunity to learn critical appraisal, evidence synthesis and other evidence-based processes
  • Faculty can provide real-time, hands-on opportunities for residents and students in which to evaluate clinical learning, evidence evaluation and use of a clinical resource to improve patient care

Traditional research and publication efforts do not routinely adapt to residency program schedules. At DynaMed, we can tailor review opportunities to fit specific topics of interest and adjust deadlines to meet residency program schedules.

Additional benefits for Residency Programs participating in DynaMed peer review include:

  • An additional educational opportunity for residents and students to learn critical appraisal, evidence synthesis and other evidence-based processes
  • Real-time, hands-on opportunities for residents and students in which faculty can evaluate clinical learning, evidence evaluation and use of a clinical resource to improve patient care
  • Activities tailored to residency program schedules
  • ACGME Practice-Based learning and Improvement competency – method and documentation forms provided
  • Program recognition: Residency program is listed in topic acknowledgements and on the Participating Reviewers & Contributors page
  • Discounts on group subscriptions
  • Continued complimentary DynaMed access provided to program graduates who continue to review their topic(s)
