MAERB Reports
Practicum and Simulation Report

This report contains the results of a survey that MAERB conducted in the fall of 2016.  The MAERB wanted to collect data about the practices of CAAHEP-accredited programs in regards to the Practicum.  This report will be used and discussed over the course of 2017 and early 2018.  In addition, the MAERB wanted to learn more about simulation activities as the MAERB members will be discussing that in the future.  Please see the 2017 Spring MAERB Report for information about a webinar focused on the practicum.  

Spring 2017 MAERB Report

The MAERB Office is sponsoring a webinar designed for CAAHEP-accredited Program Directors and other interested faculty and/or administrators.   The focus will be on findings of the MAERB Practicum Report found on the “Educators’ Tab” of the MAERB website.  The Practicum Report is the result of a survey that was conducted during fall 2016.  We have scheduled two webinars, and the content will be the same for both of them.  You can sign up for either one.  The webinars are each limited to 100 participants, and they will be very strictly monitored, so we will let you know if you sign up for an event that is full.  In addition, we will be recording one of the webinars so that the video will be up on the website for your information.

Spring 2016 MAERB Report

Some highlights within the Spring 2016 MAERB Report

1.       MAERB is proposing changes to two policies:  Policy 220 and Policy 305.  You are asked to review those policies and let us know if you have any questions or comments, as the MAERB will be discussing these policies at the August MAERB meeting.  You can submit your questions and comments at the following link by July 1, 2016:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/37G35GC  

2.  Because all programs will be making curriculum changes in order to replace the 2008 Core Curriculum with the 2015 Core Curriculum, the MAERB office will be streamlining the process.  It is expected that programs will implement the 2015 Core Curriculum no later than the fall of 2016.    Instead of filling out a Curriculum Workbook regarding these changes, Program Directors will be asked to fill out an online form, which can be accessed at the following link:    https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/15CoreCurr

 This form is due September 2nd, 2016.
