Harada and Parker to Present “Learning Communities: Creating Structures for Peer Support”

Medical educators are often called upon to help identify, support, and remediate struggling students. The root causes of student performance deficits are multifaceted and may be due to academic and non-academic factors. Deficiencies are rarely correctable through a simple solution. The Fall 2022 IAMSE Webinar Series will address strategies for identifying and supporting at-risk students and recognizing and breaking down barriers that may limit student success. The fourth session in the series will feature Caroline Harada from the University of Alabama Birmingham (USA) and Lauren Parker from the University of Kansas School of Medicine (USA).
