2nd annual Medical Education Symposium for faculty to be held Oct. 13-16

September 18, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Medical Education Symposium is a week for faculty to focus on techniques and strategies that can improve student and trainee engagement, as well as their effectiveness as teachers.

The complexity, instability, and uncertainty of our academic and clinical environments present challenges to clinicians, and educators who are entrusted to understand and respond to these challenges. It requires science-using, evidence-based clinicians, and educators who are also rigorous creative thinkers and skilled in problem-solving and problem finding.

This virtual symposium, entitled “Innovation, Creativity, and Adaptability in Medical Education,” will take place during the week of Oct. 13 – 16, and will include multiple interactive sessions.

See the full agenda and register on the Faculty Development website.
