The COMSEP annual survey facilitates scholarship pertaining to medical education by our members and enhances the diffusion of knowledge within the organization by providing a mechanism for streamlined administration of targeted surveys about members' views and practices on relevant educational issues. The first annual survey was conducted in 2009; since that time it has occurred on an annual basis.
This is a great opportunity for COMSEP members to become investigators, as the COMSEP Annual Survey is a mechanism which allows COMSEP members to ask questions of a nationally representative sample of leaders in pediatric medical education.
The COMSEP Annual Survey is an effective method for creating high quality scholarship. Your submissions will receive blinded peer feedback and accepted questions will be pilot tested and data will be returned to you read to analyze. There are typically 4-5 sections for the survey (total of 20-25 questions). Demographic data will be collected from members at the time of dues collection and be linked to the survey data by unique identifiers.
