Series Description

Evolution and Revolution in Medical Education – Placing Faculty and Students in New Experiences for Teaching and Learning

The Fall IAMSE webinar series has been traditionally dedicated to highlighting the most current issues in health sciences education, newest and most innovative technological teaching applications, and cutting-edge curricular developments that are advancing teaching and learning in the health sciences. We will continue this tradition this year by focusing on programs that are changing roles of faculty from traditional “sage-on-the-stage” content deliverers to motivators, synthesizers, mentors, facilitators, and learning coaches; changing learning environments from the traditional classroom to more experiential clinical learning sites based in-part on health system needs, utilizing competencies and milestones to measure student learning and progress that foster a flexible progression through the curriculum and integrate basic science into the clerkships, developing curricula that focus on “student well-being and resiliency”, and modifying timelines for student progression to residency. We are planning to include several of the new “Accelerating Change in Medical Education” initiatives recently funded by the American Medical Association.  

Webinar Description

Describe efforts to design, implement, and evaluate a new model of science of health care delivery (SHCD) education, generate milestones specific to SHCD and novel assessment tools, and a ‘resiliency toolbox’ of resources and to better prepare students to care for themselves and each other.
