Calibre Institute for

Quality Medical education



Educational Interventions to Reduce Healthcare Gaps and Cut Costs 
Partnering with the education team, Calibre develops comprehensive strategic educational initiatives to address healthcare gaps and reduce costs.

For target gaps, we help them redesign internal education and provide strategic recommendations that drive real-world practice applications to improve patient care and reduce healthcare gaps.


Instructional Design Training Workshops
Instructional design staff training workshops (both live and virtual) on utilizing Cognitive and Behavioral Learning Principles of how humans learn to design education that increases understanding, generates stronger recall, fosters better utilization of data at the point-of-care, and delivers higher-level outcomes. We provide ID tools and resources to help reinforce the training.

Staff Support (Concierge) Services
We reinforce ID training with ongoing  support and consultation; answering questions and helping teams develop advanced instructional designs for grant proposals and activities. These consultations, in the form of follow-up calls answer questions and provide feedback on specific ID issues and challenges. This support helps build proficiency and ID skills as the team members apply their new ID knowledge to grants and activities.

Grant Proposal Analysis Report 
We evaluate and critique grant proposals. We benchmark proposals against best-in-class and identify areas for improvement with specific, practical recommendations to increase the ability of grants to gain finding.

Activity Ratings and Review
We rate, review, and analyze sample activities and/or learning platforms for critical ID features. We provide comprehensive reports identifying areas of strengths and weaknesses with specific examples and practical recommendations to improve any needed areas.


Enhanced Grant Review Processes
We analyze current CE grant review processes and provide consultation and ID training  with IDevaluationtools such as ID checklists to improve IME team ID knowledge and skills in analyzing and identifying which grants have superior instructional designs that can best achieve target medical goals. 

IME Value Proposition 

We assess IME's current role, position, and value within Medical Affairs and provide specific, compliant recommendations to leverage and communicate IME's Value Proposition and expertise across organizations. We benchmark funded activities against best-in-class providing objective evidence of success that IME teams can use internally. Our proprietary IMEActivityScoreReport aggregates and compares the cost, quality, reach, and measured impact of funded activities.

Design & Refine Medical Information

We help communication teams develop advanced corporate medical communications, scientific information, and non-CME education by applying our Cognitive and Behavioral Learning Expertise to improve the results of communication or education initiatives (i.e. slide decks, advisory board presentations, medical information, speakers bureau programs, publications, etc.). 

Transformational Strategic Education Planning

Our Strategic Education Planning Process (SEPP) is a more effective way to develop educational plans. Target medical goals are the key drivers of a synergistic, cross-team planning process.

Complimentary, synergistic strategies are created and funding is optimized by directing finite resources to the most effective cross-team tactics. This proven “end-goals in mind” approach aligns strategy and medical goals with objective metrics that rank the potential impact of each education tactic. Teams no longer "compete" for budgets. 

Improved MSL Education
We analyze the strategy and instructional design of current MSL-delivered education for its potential to fully engage HCPs, KOLs, and organizations, and close healthcare gaps aligned with medical goals. 

Education is redesigned and optimized for virtual learning. MSLs are trained in advanced learning principles to engaging KOLs in meaningful scientific exchanges that transfer important new clinical data.
