MedEdPORTAL is a free, open-access publication service for educational (teaching and assessment) resources in the field of health professions education.The service is provided by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). Materials submitted to MedEdPORTAL are peer reviewed just like research articles submitted to traditional journals. If your educational resource is accepted for publication, you are able to include this on your CV as a peer-reviewed publication.

Materials submitted to MedEdPORTAL must be stand-alone, complete teaching or learning modules that have been classroom tested and are ready for implementation by users at other institutions. Each submission undergoes a rigorous peer review process using a standardized review instrument that evaluates whether your resource meets the criteria of educational scholarship. Published authors receive a formal citation for their accepted publications. Your MedEdPORTAL publication is considered a scholarly work that can play a role in decisions regarding your academic advancement. For more information, visit the website.

MedEdPORTAL has a Faculty Mentor Program. The faculty mentors provide support to faculty interested in submitting educational content to the MedEdPORTAL. The also present workshops on behalf of MedEdPORTAL locally and at regional and national meetings.
