September 22, 2023 Publishes 18th Peer-Reviewed Paper with Institutional Collaborators

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, October 25, 2021 / — Since the company’s founding by two medical students at Johns Hopkins, including an NIH and Cambridge-trained PhD in neuroscience (Ryan Haynes), has developed a strong academic focus by contributing scholarly works in peer-reviewed journals and at conferences. In collaboration with researchers from The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and Osmosis director of research Sean Tackett, MD, MPH, Osmosis proudly celebrates its 18th peer-reviewed publication, “Use of Commercially Produced Medical Education Videos in a Cardiovascular Curriculum: Multiple Cohort Study.”

The article presents results from a Miller School of Medicine study that examined student engagement with Osmosis medical education videos, which were incorporated into a cardiovascular systems course. The results showed that use of Osmosis videos were preferred over traditional lectures, suggesting that use of videos may enhance the curriculum with low faculty effort. Although reflective of one medical school’s experience, findings can guide the effective use of supplemental digital resources for learning in other programs.

“We love working with partners like Drs. Shehadeh and Dyal at Miller School of Medicine. They challenge Osmosis to continuously improve in our mission of providing students with the best possible learning experience, and to do so in a way that’s supported by learning science evidence,” says Catherine Johnson, Senior Director of Institutional Engagement at Osmosis. “We appreciate their scholarship and partnership, which makes medical education as a whole stronger.”
