The Medical Education Research and Quality Unit (MERQ) has a specific focus on research and innovation in education and performance in the medical and health professions.
MERQ aims to integrate research across medical education, competency, accreditation, quality and safety. It also aims to develop and implement systems and methodologies that will translate evidence from pedagogy into practice, incorporating both medical education as well as clinical practice.
A key initiative of the Monash University Better Teaching, Better Learning Agenda is that "every student has an outstanding learning experience characterised by discovery, creativity and opportunity, and underpinned by quality"1.
This initiative is at the heart of what MERQ sets out to achieve through its research and teaching agenda.
