Medical education resources include the Health Sciences library's subject aggregation page, a dedicated Moodle page for staff, and other specialised resources, as well as links to various organisations which support medical education research and development.
This page aggregates the key journals and books available through the University of Otago library system, and highlights recent medical education research by OMS staff.
A resource page for medical education research has been created on Moodle for OMS. It contains current research projects occurring at OMS; a PDF of a selection of different journals to publish your research with metric information; and links to books, journal articles, podcasts and Youtube videos around different aspects of conducting medical/health professional research.

This page is only available to staff, students and administrators who are involved with the OMS programme. If you are having difficulty accessing the page, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The curriculum map of the OMS programme is a resource to look at what is being taught where at different stages of the MBChB degree. This can be helpful when designing research projects that involve scoping out what is taught in a particular area. Please visit the curriculum map here:
If you need statistical help for your research project, the Centre for Biostatistics in the Division of Health Sciences is here to help. We strongly recommend you contact the Centre in the early stages of designing your research project – this will significantly help the quality of your project and avoid any unforeseen future pitfalls before you are too far along in the research process.
Please visit their webpage for more information here (links to the services in UOW and UOC are located at the bottom of the Centre’s webpage):
