AFTER REQUESTING A CONSULTATION, PLEASE ALLOW US ONE (1) WEEK FOR SCHEDULING AND PREPARATION.
ABOUT OUR SERVICES
Services provided to Medical College of Georgia (MCG) faculty and staff.
Consultations may occur once or on multiple occasions, and in some cases, may result in long-term, productive collaborations. We assist individuals at all stages of their medical education career development and at all levels of health science educator and educational research experience. To ensure that we have the capacity for the maximum number of requests possible, MCG faculty are limited to five (5) hours per academic year of free consultation across EII consultation services.
If you are unsure about whether your idea fits within the EII consultation framework, please contact us prior to submitting a request form.
We have three (3) consultation services to support your needs: 1) Educational Research and Scholarship, 2) Educator Consultations, and 3) Educational Statistics.
The EII currently does not charge for the first five (5) hours* of consultation services for internal clients at MCG. This includes direct time with clients as well as time to research and respond in writing to your needs. We ask that you review and follow our Attribution and Authorship Guidelines as appropriate in relation to our consultant contributions.
*Please note there is a surcharge for any services requested with less than one (1) week of lead time such that the fee for the “free services” will be 50% of our hourly rate or $45 per hour for the first five (5) hours.
For individuals whose needs go above the five (5) hours of free consultation per year, we have two (2) primary options (and a blended combination thereof).
Option 1: Pay by the Hour
Option 2: Percent Effort
Option 3: Blend of Hourly/Percent Effort
TYPE OF CONSULTATIONS OFFERED:
Please Note: For grants or projects with absolute deadlines, the EII should be contacted as soon as you know that you may want to use our consultation services for your health science education grant application or project. The earlier we are notified, the more able we are to develop a collaborative timeline for completion. For grants and projects in need of review, editing, and statistical planning, we should be contacted at least four (4) weeks prior about the project and specific needs. For grants and projects with significant development, design, and writing needs, we need a minimum of six (6) weeks’ notice and preferably longer. We operate on a “first come, first serve” basis and are limited in the number of major projects we can accept that have deadlines in close proximity.
