METRICS model

What is OHMES?

The Office of Health & Medical Education Scholarship (OHMES) was established in 2013, in response to the University's "Eyes High" vision to be a catalyst and enabler for educational scholarship in the Cumming School of Medicine (CSM).  OHMES focuses on the scholarship of teaching, an area of academic activity that is truly part of the scholarship expected of a member of the academic community.

Educational scholarship is "an umbrella term which can encompass both research and innovation in health professions education" (CAME definition).  The pursuit of educational scholarship is central to ensuring quality and capacity in educational programs and thereby in the health workforce as a whole. 

Rather than focusing exclusively on research, OHMES takes a holistic perspective on what counts as scholarship. The METRICS model was developed by OHMES (Ellaway and Topps 2017) as a way of representing the many intersecting approaches to inquiry that can be considered scholarly in
health and medical education.

To that end, OHMES offers a number of services and supports to faculty, students and staff of the CSM to pursue and achieve educational scholarship.

OHMES is funded through the office of the Senior Associate Dean Education, and is also a unit of the O'Brien Institute for Public Health.  Our members and volunteers work with other departments and units in the CSM, other UofC faculties, and scholarship units worldwide.

In its essence, OHMES is a community rather than solely a provider of services.  We look forward to continued and future collaborations with our partners, to promote a scholarship culture across disciplines.
