Educating the Educators

Our model forum, created by residency program directors, focuses on faculty development and engagement, curriculum development, and resident education. Communicating critical content to medical students and residents requires effective teaching and mentoring skills. Symposia, free papers, small group networking sessions, and poster sessions, provide a platform for exchanging and exploring innovative approaches to training and counseling with an emphasis on evidence based practice and results.

Guidance with Gurus

Are you looking for guidance from a guru? Would you like to have an exchange with an expert? Join these small group discussion opportunities with knowledgeable facilitators and varied topics chosen by attendees. Given the difficulty in having discussions with large groups, these breakout sessions will be limited to small groups of people at a time. Multiple sessions will run concurrently, and the sessions are designed to be intimate, allowing live, small group discussions with topic specialists.
