On behalf of the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE), I am pleased to announce that we are now accepting proposals for Saturday Professional Development Workshops for the 2022 IAMSE meeting. The annual meeting will be held in Denver, Colorado, USA from June 4-7, 2022.
Proposals will be accepted through July, 1, 2021. The committee will review all proposals and select 3-4 full-day workshops and 6-8 half-day workshops for the meeting.
A Pre-Conference Faculty Development Course is 3 or 6 hours in length and enrollment is limited. Instructors are asked to combine appropriate amounts of didactic presentation with significant “hands-on” opportunities for participants. For the participants, a certificate of attendance will be available after completion of the course if needed. IAMSE Saturday Professional Development Workshops focus on career/professional development, and the workshops should be useful for advancing the career of the attendee. The broad umbrella areas of focus for these workshops include:
- Leadership/Advancement as a Medical Educator
Saturday Professional Development Workshops proposals must include the following information:
- Title of the workshop
- Name and e-mail of organizer
- Facilitator(s) information
- Summary of the workshop and how it will advance the career of the attendee
- Length of the workshop
- Level of the workshop (introductory/intermediate/advanced)
- Who should participate
All abstracts must be submitted in the format requested through the online abstract submission site found here.
If you have any questions about submitting your proposal, please contact IAMSE via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
