INNOVATIONS IN MEDICAL EDUCATION CONFERENCE
The annual Innovations in Medical Education Conference takes place over one and a half days at the end of February each year. It is sponsored by the Department of Medical Education and the Office of Continuing Medical Education, Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. The conference provides an excellent opportunity to join a growing community of educators, leaders, scholars, and learners working together to promote change in health professions education, moving towards a higher level of excellence and wellbeing. The conference provides a friendly atmosphere that promotes maximum interaction among participants seeking to discuss, assess, and report on educational innovations within health professions education. This exciting and stimulating program includes a plenary session, workshops, oral presentations, and poster sessions. Abstracts for workshops and curricular exemplars are due in August each year. Abstracts for innovations with data and for “cool ideas” are due in October each year.
