IAMSE Spring 2019 Webinar Series: “Role of Foundational Sciences in Clinical Years”

The 2019 IAMSE Spring Webcast Audio Seminar Series is right around the corner! This season will focus on the role of basic science in current medical education. How can basic science instruction continue to fulfill its mission of providing a scientific approach to the practice of medicine? The IAMSE spring series is addressing this question by presenting several new approaches to improve foundational science instruction beyond integration with the clinical sciences. This March, we’ve lined up eight speakers to shine a light on the topic across multiple landscapes in medical education. Our third session’s speaker is Dr. Kim Dahlman.

Role of Foundational Sciences in Clinical Years
Presenter: Kim Dahlman – Vanderbilt University Medical Center
Session: March 21, 2019 at 12pm Eastern Time

Traditional medical curricula generally place the majority of foundational science learning into the pre-clerkship years. Yet, it has been recognized that foundational science education should occur across the medical curriculum to promote excellence in clinical performance. This session will provide participants with an innovative approach to integrating foundational sciences and meaningful clinical experiences in the post-clerkship curriculum. Participants will learn about several educational strategies and the resources necessary to achieve successful integration of foundational sciences and patient care. Furthermore, participants will recognize the challenges and learn practical solutions of this approach in order to implement post-clerkship foundational science integration at their own institutions.
