  • AAMC Building Better Curriculum Webinar - February 12, 2020

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 02/12/2020 at 1:00 PM (EST)

    Topics: Presentation 1: The Hidden Curriculum of Compassionate Care: Can Assessment Drive Compassion? Presentation 2: Project Wholehearted

    Presentation 1 Topic: The Hidden Curriculum of Compassionate Care: Can Assessment Drive Compassion

    Medical schools are expected to promote compassionate care among learners. Assessment is a key way to communicate values to learners but can create a hidden curriculum. Assessing compassionate care is challenging; however, not assessing it can communicate to students that such care is not valued. This presentation will describe a study that explored how current assessment strategies promote or suppress the idea that caring behaviors are valued learning objectives. 

    Presentation 2 Topic: Project Wholehearted 

    Learning to organize, collaborate and lead positive change within our immediate community is the essential rite of passage as physicians and community advocates. The students at New York Medical College (NYMC) recognizes that identifying and uplifting positive change within our own community will better enable us to contribute to societal healthcare justice or larger medical education reform in the future. Join the call to learn more about Project Wholehearted – an attempt to centralize humanism and compassion in medical education.

    Sarah Wright
    Scientist, Michael Garron Hospital & Wilson Centre Assistant Professor, Dept. of Family and Community Medicine, University of Toronto

    Dr. Sarah Wright’s research program explores the (un)intended consequences of educational action that occurs in the intersections between assessment theory and practice. Her work is inspired and informed by a decade of experience as a psychometrician at Newcastle University Medical School (UK).  This practical experience has given her insight into how assessment frameworks can limit or support educational goals such as fostering compassionate practitioners or striving for social change. For example, she has combined psychometric and critical approaches to investigate the ways in which admissions policies often work to favour culturally and socially privileged medical students, thereby limiting attempts to improve student diversity. Through improved understanding of how emerging education goals transpire within existing education structures, her research seeks to improve education practice.

  • Operationalizing Your Strategic Plan: Part II - February 11

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 02/11/2020 at 3:00 PM (EST)

    This webinar, Part II in a series hosted by the AAMC GIP Strategic Planning and Management Subcommittee, will address some of the challenges of operationalizing your strategic plan and provide practical ways to resolve them.

    In practice, your organization’s strategic plan should guide your employees’ work each week, month, and year. So why isn’t it doing that? Perhaps it’s more operational than strategic. Perhaps it does not include all aspects of your organization. Perhaps no one on your campus is charged daily with ensuring its implementation. Perhaps it’s not championed by your CEO. Perhaps it lacks adequate implementation funding or data-informed buy-in. 

    The mentioned possibilities and others may stifle your institution’s ability to operationalize your strategic plan, relegating it as an afterthought. The consequences of that could be far-reaching, as healthcare needs are more demanding. Further, the landscape in academic medicine, health sciences, and healthcare is rapidly changing.

    This webinar, Part II in a series hosted by the AAMC GIP Strategic Planning and Management Subcommittee, will address some of these challenges and provide practical ways to resolve them. If you are interested in ensuring that the strategic direction of your organization is well-defined and achieved, please join our webinar on February 11th.
