Resources for Educators During COVID-19

Harvard Medical School Medical Student COVID-19 Curriculum
One of the greatest difficulties facing everyone nowadays is a lack of clarity about what is going on and what lies ahead. We students especially feel a need to deepen our knowledge of the situation, as we are often viewed as resources by our friends and family. However, it soon became clear how challenging it was to process the wealth of information coming our way. A team of us at Harvard Medical School set out to quickly collate and synthesize accurate information about the pandemic to share with those who do not have the time or resources to research it themselves.
Additional resources include: Curriculum for Kids, an article written by the team discussing the curriculum and an opportunity to give direct feedback to the developers.

Say Hello to Our Featured Member 2019 Annual Meeting Site Host Rick Vari

Our association is a robust and diverse set of educators, researchers, medical professionals, volunteers and academics that come from all walks of life and from around the globe. Each month we choose a member to highlight their academic and professional career and see how they are making the best of their membership in IAMSE. This month’s Featured Member is our 2019 annual meeting site host, IAMSE President Rick Vari.



Rick Vari, PhD
Professor & Senior Dean for Academic Affairs
Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine
Roanoke, Virginia, USA

Why was the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine the right choice for the 2019 IAMSE meeting?
We are the right choice for the meeting this year because we did a fabulous conference several years ago and we were already in the queue for a future IAMSE meeting. We had some scheduling issues with our original site for 2019 and we were able to step in and fill the void. We have a wonderful hotel site (at the Hotel Roanoke), and the people who came from all across North America for the Collaborating Across Borders V: An American-Canadian Dialogue on Interprofessional Healthcare and Practice, in 2015 really enjoyed it. As a relatively new medical school, we are excited about continuing our growing success in medical education; hosting the IAMSE meeting is a real honor for us.

What opportunities will attendees see in Roanoke that they’ve not seen in years past?
Roanoke is a beautiful city to have a conference. We’ve localized the venue, which is a major goal for IAMSE. Attendees and exhibitors will appreciate the layout of the conference site. We are adjacent to the Roanoke Market Square with restaurants, breweries, and shopping featuring local items. There are just lots of opportunities for networking and entertainment. The program is outstanding with presentations and sessions on current and future challenges facing health sciences educators. International abstract submission is up, so more colleagues from other parts of the world may be attending. Increased student participation will be another highlight. This year, IAMSE is also hosting a Taste of Roanoke Street Fair which will replace the annual gala dinner. IAMSE 2019 is going to be a very easy conference to attend. If you can stay for the Grand Extravaganza on Tuesday afternoon it is going to be very special with a hiking trip to a beautiful location on the Blue Ridge Parkway and a visit to the Ballast Point brewery (East Coast operation) for dinner. 

Can you tell me more about this new event?
We are blocking off the Market Square in downtown Roanoke. We will have tastes of local food, beverages, and music. This is a chance to interact in a casual fun setting with lots of local food and a live band! It’s going to be a lot of fun.

What session or speaker are you most looking forward to this year?
I’m looking forward to, of course, the Board of Directors and Committee Chairs meeting.  I’ve enjoyed being president and interacting with the Board and Committee Chairs in this planning session provides IAMSE with a sense of solid direction.  The plenary sessions also look very strong. I’m interested in the Gen Z session (Generation Z: The New Kids on the Block) and How to Use Disruptive Technology to Make Education Better – Not Just Different.

It sounds likes there is much to look forward to this year. Anything else you’d like to share?
The local response from the other medical schools in the area in support of the IAMSE meeting in Roanoke has been very strong.  As a new school, this is a tremendous opportunity for us and the other medical schools in the area to get better acquainted.

Say hello to our featured member Maria Sheakley!

Our association is a robust and diverse set of educators, students, researchers, medical professionals, volunteers and academics that come from all walks of life and from around the globe. Each month we choose a member to highlight their academic and professional career and see how they are making the best of their membership in IAMSE. This month’s Featured Member is Maria Sheakley.

Maria Sheakley, PhD
IAMSE 2022 Program Committee Chair
Associate Dean for Student Affairs and Professor of Physiology
Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine (WMed)

We are finally back in person for the 2022 meeting! Since I know we are all excited about this opportunity to gather together, what have you been looking forward to most during our time in Denver?
I’m most excited to engage with real people at a live conference in Denver!! I serve on several IAMSE committees, and I always look forward to seeing the other committee members in person each year. This year is particularly exciting since we have not been able to gather in person for several years! IAMSE is also the place where I typically catch up with many of my past colleagues, which I’m really looking forward to in Denver. And most importantly, I’m excited to meet new people and learn about new trends and best practices in health sciences education through the poster and oral sessions, focus sessions, and plenary talks. The networking opportunities at IAMSE are AMAZING! I’d also like to extend a very special thanks to Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine for sponsoring the 2022 IAMSE annual meeting in the beautiful city of Denver!!

What does the process of coordinating an academic conference look like?
The Program Committee is composed of 15 diverse members representing different health science specialties, disciplines, institutions, geographic locations, races, ethnicities, and genders. We’ve been meeting monthly for the past 18 months to plan this conference. I personally think it’s the best IAMSE committee because the results of the work, the annual IAMSE meeting, are spectacular and tangible. The planning process and timeline has been honed over the years and is very well organized by the staff at JulNet, particularly Hannah McCreary who helps with all planning aspects of the meeting. The Program Committee is responsible for many aspects of the meeting, including selecting the conference theme, plenary speakers, and focus sessions. This year we will have 4 plenary speakers, 1 student plenary panel, 12 pre-conference workshops, 38 focus sessions, 77 oral presentations, and 211 poster presentations! The social and networking sessions are also a highlight of the meeting!

Can you share a standout memory or highlight from the planning process for this event? 
My favorite part of the planning process was selecting the conference theme! This was the first big task of the committee, and it allowed us to work together as a cohesive group to choose the identity of this meeting. After several long discussions and a lot of refinement, the theme for the meeting was decided to be ‘Medical Educators, Learners, and Providers: Building the Future Together’. We particularly liked the inclusivity of this theme for all of those who contribute to medical science education, ‘Educators, Learners, and Providers’. 

With your tenure as the 2022 Program Committee Chair about to come to an end, what do you plan to do next? What advice would you give to another member considering joining an upcoming planning committee?
Going forward, I will continue to serve on the IAMSE Board of Directors and plan to stay very involved in the association. For members considering joining the next Program Committee or any other IAMSE committee, do it! It’s the best way to meet people at IAMSE and build a community of peers and mentors in the health sciences field!

Anything else that you would like to add?
I’d like to send a very special thank you to the 2022 Program Committee Members (Peter de Jong, Khalil Eldeeb, Stacie Fairley, Dave Harris, Amber Heck, Mark Hernandez, Samuel Ikonne, Molly Johannessen, Nicole Kelp, Aaron Marshall, Jennifer Montemayer, Neil Osheroff, Sol Roberts-Lieb, Michiel Schokking, and Carla Todaro) and Hannah McCreary from JulNet for all of their hard work; this meeting definitely takes a village to plan!
