CAML Workshops

Workshop Schedule

The workshop series for faculty addresses essential core educational topics and skills necessary for success in teaching and learning in the Western Reserve2 Curriculum. 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. 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.

In the past, we have been pleased to present Webcast Audio Seminar Series from the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE).  These webinars are now available as archives.  Faculty members, staff, postdocs, and students in the CWRU community can e-mail for a link to the archives. 


IAMSE Winter 2020 Webcast Audio Seminar Series

How is Health Science Education Tackling the Opioid Epidemic?

The opioid epidemic poses a multifaceted challenge, but health science education is playing a significant role in combating this health care crisis. With the development of innovative curricula in pain management and substance abuse. The Winter IAMSE web-based seminar series will provide a comprehensive synopsis of these efforts to respond to the opioid crisis. After an introduction to the topic, the audience will learn about successful health science curricula that expand on existing coursework. Interprofessional education (IPE) is a crucial contributor to improved health outcomes, and the series will include a presentation on IPE that addresses the opioid crisis. The series will include an introduction to curricula about alternative and non-pharmacological approaches to pain management and conclude with a presentation on issues of substance abuse from a student affairs perspective. At the conclusion of this series, participants will have an in-depth understanding of the current educational strategies in response to the opioid epidemic including challenges and opportunities. Furthermore, the series will provide hands-on tips for participants wishing to develop or expand existing pain management curricula within their institutions.
