From a press release (thanks toAnne Taylor-Vaisey for the pointer):
The AAMC announces the launch of MedEdPORTAL, a web-based tool that promotes collaboration across disciplines and institutions by facilitating the exchange of peer reviewed educational materials, knowledge, and solutions. MedEdPORTAL will serve as a central repository of high quality educational materials such as PowerPoint presentations, assessment materials, virtual patient cases, and faculty development materials.
MedEdPORTAL will be implemented in phases through 2005 and 2006. During the initial phase, non-web-based educational materials and those that are available on external websites will be peer-reviewed, referenced, and linked on the MedEdPORTAL site. Faculty may submit their web sites or educational materials at anytime for peer review and if accepted, the resources will be referenced in the Med! EdPORTAL system as a peer reviewed resource.
The MedEdPORTAL web address is http://www.aamc.org/mededportal
Individuals interested in submitting educational materials for peer review can review the peer review guidelines and download the submission form from the following MedEdPORTAL web page: www.aamc.org/meded/mededportal/publish.htm A detailed implementation timeline is available on the following MedEdPORTAL web page: http://www.aamc.org/meded/mededportal/timeline.htm
