During the upcoming IAMSE meeting in Roanoke, there will be a terrific pre-conference session for students. We are very excited to offer this workshop in partnership with ScholarRx on the topic of New Educator and Scholar Training (NEST): A Professional Development Workshop for Students. Best of all, students can attend at no charge!
The highly interactive New Educator and Scholar Training (NEST) workshop will introduce student participants to a framework for medical education professional development and promote major domains including curricular design, pedagogic strategies, and education scholarship (Chen et al., 2017; Freret et al., 2017). The NEST workshop is customized towards the needs of health professions students who self-identify with a strong interest in long-term career development in education. Prior formal training is not a prerequisite for participation.
