Open to DMU faculty and staff only. There is no cost to attend and registration is not required.



Attend the Transforming Education: Leading Innovations in Health Professions Education webinar hosted by the AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI).

As part of its ongoing work to transform medical education, the American Medical Association, along with its Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium, has launched a bimonthly webinar series, “Innovations in Medical Education,” to highlight exciting new innovations emerging from medical schools across the country.

Health care delivery is changing at an unprecedented pace due to advances in technology, an aging population, the increasing burden of chronic diseases, and health care costs. Medical education, which underwent its last major transformation over a hundred years ago, needs to change so the next generation of physicians is prepared to take care of today's and future patients in a constantly changing environment.

Consortium schools have been developing educational innovations to prepare students for the practice of tomorrow. Speakers will describe changes in health care delivery affecting medical education, discuss innovations in medical education to address those changes including competency-based evaluation and the student e-portfolio, the master adaptive learner, and academic coaching.
