Integration and Inquiry, Innovation and Improvement

Des Moines , IA US
September 8, 2011

“Educating Physicians” calls for an integrated approach to medical education and cultivation of habits of mind and cultures that support inquiry, innovation, and improvement. In this session we will discuss the context and impetus for these two recommendations as well as relevant literature from the learning sciences. Then we will delve into practical applications and promising examples of these recommendations in undergraduate and graduate medical education. We will conclude with time for participants to discuss ways of applying these recommendations to educational programs in their own institutions.
