We recently hosted our second ever Evidence-based Health Care (EBHC) Summer School, inviting our students and supervisors, consumers, and other leading evidence-based experts from Oxford to a variety of events, including short training courses, presentations and workshops.
The non-accredited week was developed to extend learning opportunities for students enrolled on our evidence-based health care programme and provided invaluable networking with attendees contributing expertise from a wide range of Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) fields.
A total of 26 students from across the programme travelled from as far afield as America, Antigua, Canada, Columbia, Israel, New Zealand, Pakistan, Poland, Qatar, UAE, and Uganda to take advantage of dedicated time in Oxford, and additional contact with fellow students and supervisors at Kellogg College,
Sessions covered topics including: understanding the publication process and peer review; publication bias; alternative platforms/outlets - all specifically tailored to producing referable-content and publications from dissertations and thesis.
Plans for Summer School 2024, to be held from 8 – 12 July, include a focus on research integrity with taught methods of rigour, honesty, fairness and open communication that are translatable to evidence-based health care.
Attendees will be supported with sessions tailored for presenting learned information, concepts and results in thesis and dissertations. Additional relevant resources will be available to enhance engagement in many ways of learning e.g. observational, interactive, and creative.
We encourage our students to effectively use all the additional resources and opportunities available to them to motivate productive future endeavours and collaborations that improve healthcare. During our Summer School skills weeks there will be time allocated for informal opportunities to form relationships and learn more about the diverse projects happening within the programme, with directors, module coordinators and supervisors available for guidance and advice on all aspects of students’ part-time studies.
