Sometimes you just need to add more lanes to the highway. The IAMSE Webinar Committee is excited to announce our Spring series, Widening the Road to Health Professions Education: Expanding access for diverse and underserved populations. This series will explore innovative practices in recruiting and matriculating students from underserved populations into health sciences programs and creating pathways for students to meet the unique needs of their communities. The final session in the series will feature Leila Amiri of the Robert Larner MD, College of Medicine at the University of Vermont (USA).
Progress and Challenge of Pathway Programs
Presenter: Leila Amiri, PhD
Session Date & Time: March 30, 2023 at 12pm Eastern
Session Description: The goal of diversifying the physician workforce has been in the forefront of medical education for several decades. Despite this seemingly concerted effort we still do not show a significant increase towards a workforce that reflects the healthcare needs of the diverse population of the United States. Pathway programs have been found to be successful in targeted recruitment of learners into medicine. In this session we will discuss how we can think about the steps involved in developing an admissions process as one element towards the goal of an equitable system of educating physicians. We will also consider some of the shared challenges that programs and participants face towards achieving this goal.
