The International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE) is pleased to announce the call for focus sessions for the 24th Annual IAMSE Conference to be held at the Hotel Hilton Denver City Center from June 13-16, 2020. The IAMSE meeting offers opportunities for faculty development and networking, bringing together medical sciences and medical education across the continuum of health care education.
The purpose of a 90-minute Focus Session is to “focus in” on a specific topic in a small group discussion format. Groups of 10-50 individuals consider a particular topic in an interactive format. Formats can be variable. For instance, the Session Leader may arrange for the pros and cons of a particular issue to be presented by a mini-panel discussion. Alternately, the group may be subdivided and certain tasks assigned to be developed for summary during the last 20-minutes of the session. Discussion in a paradigm of professional development is the goal, so not more than one-third of the time is to be used for a formal presentation (half of the time if using panel discussion format).
All abstracts must be submitted in the format requested through the online abstract submission site found here.
Submission deadline is September 1, 2019. Abstract acceptance notifications will be returned by November 1.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions about your submission.
We hope to see you next year!
