Continuing with our exploration of how basic science education can be leveraged for student success, this sequel to our Winter series will expand upon the traditional roles of basic sciences and venture into unexplored areas. What is the role of basic science education in (1) interprofessional training, (2) social sciences curricula, (3) service-learning, (4) pre-clerkship integration, (5) and self-directed learning? These domains are cornerstones of medical education and closely align with accreditation elements for the LCME, COCA, and other accreditation bodies within the health professions. To familiarize basic science educators with these five domains of medical education, leading experts will present on each during this five-part webinar series titled:

To Infinity and Beyond:
Expanding the Scope of Basic Sciences in

Meeting Accreditation Standards

The speakers will provide the audience with an overview and discuss current topics and issues relevant to each domain as well as outline opportunities for basic science educators to become involved. This series will build a framework through which basic scientists can leverage their content to meet a variety of accreditation standards. At the end of the series, the audience will be better prepared to contribute and advance these domains so crucial to the formation of successful clinicians.
