Dr. Prislin's research focuses on evaluating medical education outcomes. He is examining what students learn in various settings pre-clinical vs. clinical, ambulatory vs. inpatient, university vs. community and exploring the efficacy of a variety of educational approaches. Of particular interest to Dr. Prislin is how students are socialized to the professional role of physicians. Dr. Prislin is also interested in analyzing various methods of student performance including the utilization of feedback from live and standardized patients. Finally, Dr. Prislin is interested in examining innovative approaches to faculty development.
