The workshop series for faculty addresses essential core educational topics and skills necessary for success in teaching and learning in the Western Reserve2 Curriculum. The workshop offerings provide a lively forum for the exchange of ideas and resources. These medical education workshops are available at the School of Medicine, as well as by request from specific hospital sites.
Targeting the needs of teaching in the Basic Sciences and Clinical Medicine, these workshops are for basic and clinician scientists, physician educators, attending physicians, preceptors, alumni, residents and staff who seek to prepare themselves for teaching in the Western Reserve2 Curriculum and/or improve their teaching skills.
This fall we are pleased to be able to present a Webcast Audio Seminar Series from the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE).
Evolution and Revolution in Medical Education - Global Challenges and Solutions in Health Professions Education
The Fall 2017 IAMSE Web Seminar Series takes on an increased international flavor as presenters review health professions education around the world each with unique challenges and solutions. The goal of this series is to foster the exchange of ideas in the community of health science educators. Continuing with the longitudinal focus on competency-based-education, the series begins with an overview of medical education in Canada with an emphasis on the initiatives of the International Competencies in Basic Medical Education (ICBME). From the Far East, we will hear a presentation on Chinese medical education (World-China initiative) which places an emphasis on primary care in China. A panel will provide an overview of the European model of health professions education from globalization of education to global healthcare. Another presentation will explore medical education challenges and solutions in Sub-Saharan Africa. The series will conclude with a session focusing on an integrated model of medical care: childhood disease prevention in South America. At the end of the series the audience will be able to identify global challenges and solutions to medical education that may provide valuable perspectives at the local level.
