The Institute of Research and Clinical Strategy (IRCS) at Adtalem is a dedicated academic unit committed to researching and developing simulation technology as it pertains to clinical education.
IRCS enhances the student experience by exploring and promoting the use of the most innovative clinical resources, from high-tech medical simulation labs and technology to collaborative projects and educational seminars in tandem with both Adtalem based and external partners. By negotiating and contracting on Adtalem’s behalf, IRCS is instrumental in bringing advanced software education solutions to the clinical classroom, ensuring that our students receive the solutions they need in an increasingly technical curriculum landscape. Adtalem also looks to the IRCS team to provide graduate medical education strategy and oversight, as well as formulate and facilitate United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE) review courses.
IRCS utilizes its team’s breadth and depth of expertise to bring advanced research design and statistical analysis to Adtalem institutions, Adtalem Global Education units and departments, and affiliated educational clinical and technical partners. The IRCS team is also tasked with publishing its research in scholarly journals and presenting at national and international conventions.
Other services include navigating and monitoring legal and regulatory compliance for clinical contracts; providing strategy and contract direction, consultation, and acquisition modeling to Adtalem institutions; and lobbying on behalf of state and national undergraduate and graduate medical education.
