Introduction to the CORAL Collection

Learning some of the most important concepts and principles in medical education.

The CORAL Collection is a set of materials designed for education committee members and course and program directors. These Cells will help people learn some of the most important concepts and principles in medical education so that they collectively and individually may make more informed and we hope better educational decisions.

Each Cell is short, discrete, and designed to teach. Each Cell has an introduction, one to three objectives, self-assessments, a section to present the material, a quiz with expert responses, an evaluation so we can get better, references and further reading, and a concept map showing related Cells.

There are three ways to find Cells of interest: by grouping, alphabetically, and indirectly by using the glossary.
