We would like to remind you that we are currently accepting poster and oral abstracts for presentation at the 2017 IAMSE conference.

The 21st Annual IAMSE Conference will be held in Burlington, Vermont, US from June 10-13, 2017. The IAMSE meeting offers opportunities for faculty development and networking, bringing together medical science educators from many professional disciplines and spanning the continuum of health care education.

All abstracts for Oral and Poster presentations must be submitted in the format requested through the online abstract submission site.

Please click here to submit your abstract.

Please note: The first time you enter the site, if you have not already done so previously, you will be required to create a user profile.

Submission deadline is December 15, 2016. Authors will be notified with a decision regarding their abstract submission by March 1.

The Membership Committee has been focusing on growing the number of Physician Assistant members.  We have been strengthening the relationship with the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA), and recently came to an agreement that PAEA and IAMSE will each host and attend as exhibitors each other’s annual meeting. PAEA and IAMSE have mutually agreed to exchange exhibit booth space at their respective annual meetings at no costs.

Remember to take a few minutes to visit the IAMSE member profile website here so that you can update your personal settings if you didn’t get a chance to already. These updates will allow the membership committee to determine what proportion of our membership are nursing educators, physician assistant educators, chiropractic educators, allopathic and osteopathic educators, alternative medicine educators, optometry educators, etc.

Thanks for your help,

Greg Smith, Chairman, IAMSE Membership Committee
Vice President, IAMSE
