A scoping review of mentor training programs in medicine between 1990 and 2017.
Authors: Sheri K, Too JYJ, Chuah SEL, Toh YP, Mason S, Radha Krishna LK Abstract Effective mentoring enhances the personal and professional development of mentees and mentors, boosts the reputation of host organizations and improves patient outcomes. Much of this success hinges upon the mentor's ability to nurture personalized mentoring relationships and mentoring environments, provide effective feedback and render timely, responsive, appropriate, and personalized support. However, mentors are often untrained raising concerns about the quality and oversight of mentoring support.To promote effective and consistent u...

Best practice versus actual practice: an audit of survey pretesting practices reported in a sample of medical education journals.
Conclusions: Findings from this audit study indicate that reported survey pretesting appears to be lower than that reported in healthcare journals. This is concerning, as results of survey studies and evaluation projects are used to inform educational practices, guide future research, and influence policy and program development. Findings apply to both survey developers and faculty across a range of fields, including evaluation and medical education research.

Self-regulated learning in a competency-based and flipped learning environment: learning strategies across achievement levels and years.
Conclusions: Students who lack self-regulation strategies may fail to comprehend or connect ideas in their pre-class learning, which could lead to ineffective learning outcomes during in-class activities. Our study indicated that while medical students, who tend to be successful learners in their undergraduate study, were able to use learning strategies to plan and reflect on their learning, they need more explicit instruction in how to monitor their own learning.
