MedU Integration Meeting a Success

The 2013 MedU annual meeting was held on September 16-20, 2013 at the Hanover Inn in Hanover, NH. More than 50 attendees enjoyed two plenary addresses and briefings from MedU senior leaders while participating in working groups and editorial board meetings dedicated to topics related to this year’s theme---integration.

 

Working groups:

At this year's meeting, we introduced cross-disciplinary working groups that included editorial board members from CLIPP, CORE, fmCASES, SIMPLE, as well as MedU staff and invited experts. In keeping with our mission of transforming medical education, each group (team-based learning [TBL], flipping the classroom, clinical reasoning, basic science, and research) will develop and implement initiatives within the coming year.

Plenary addresses by education thought leaders: 

To further our theme of integration, and in support of our TBL working group initiatives, we invited Paul Haidet, MD, MPH (Penn State College of Medicine) to present an overview of TBL in medical education.

Dr. Haidet then facilitated a professional training workshop that allowed our medical educator participants to experience TBL from the student's perspective as well as apply TBL strategies to MedU cases.

To inspire new pathways for the future of education, and in support of our research working group initiatives, we invited Malcolm Brown, PhD (Educause). The provocative presentation on education technology and disruptive innovation provided compelling concepts that will influence working group intiatives and future collaborations.

Popular poster session:

This year, we introduced a poster session to highlight recent innovations. Our staff and editorial board members presented 16 posters on topics including the MedU mobile app, high value care curriculum, engagement metric development and validation, cognitive improvements to our cases, student self assessment, as well as educator tools and research. The session was so successful that we plan to feature some posters at upcoming national conferences.

Work and fun:  

In addition to working indoors, we enjoyed the beautiful outdoors of the Upper Valley with a hike and a run.
