The Research Basics Video Series is a collaboration between the USD Sanford School of Medicine and the University Libraries' Digital Scholarship & Research Services (DSRS). The goal of the series is to provide Pillar 1 medical students with a comprehensive yet brief overview of the research process, including important terminology and definitions, that will help students get involved in scientific research from the very beginning of their medical careers. After watching the videos, medical students should have a better understanding about the kinds of research they might be interested in participating in, and how to turn that research into publications that will not only help them further their careers, but will advance scientific knowledge and improve human health.
