  • NIH FIRST & Recruiting and Retaining Diverse Biomedical Research Faculty - May 14

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 05/14/2021 at 1:30 PM (EDT)

    In efforts to increase diversity among faculty and trainees, many medical schools are considering examining “cohort” recruitments, or hiring for multiple positions simultaneously in a methodical and coordinated process.

    In efforts to increase diversity among faculty and trainees, many medical schools are considering examining “cohort” recruitments, or hiring for multiple positions simultaneously in a methodical and coordinated process. The NIH has recently launched the Faculty Institutional Recruitment for Sustainable Transformation (FIRST) program that would assist funded institutions in cohort hiring. This session will explore the NIH FIRST award, together with the experiences of two institutions that have pioneered methods for improving recruitment, retention, and advancement of faculty. A question and answer period will follow the presentation, or you may submit questions ahead of time to AAMC staff at GRAND@aamc.org.

    The webinar is designed by AAMC GRAND for an audience to include deans, research deans and senior research leaders, graduate and training program directors, deans for diversity and inclusion, and chairs and faculty members.

  • MedBiquitous 2030: Building the Digital Ecosystem for Health Professions Education - April 20

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 04/20/2021 at 12:00 PM (EDT)

    “MedBiquitous Community Connection” is a series of free one-hour webinars featuring health professions educators and technology innovators from around the globe.

    A consistent challenge that MedBiquitous has been called upon to address is bringing to bear a distributed set of tools and resources in support of health professions education (HPE) and credentialing. Although the MedBiquitous community has answered this call on multiple occasions, the challenge remains that the adoption of the standards and guidelines produced by the community occurs only in niche pockets, rather than by the HPE community at large.

    We are delighted to announce the launch of a new program initiative “MedBiquitous 2030.”

    In the last year, the global COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the fragility of our existing technology infrastructure. The delivery of education and the verification of credentials are just two examples of high-level processes that were disrupted and rapidly modified to accommodate changes that accompanied the pandemic. In almost every case, silos between existing technologies and data sets were made abundantly apparent, and integration and interoperability were touted as solutions to this dilemma.

    In early April, the white paper “MedBiquitous 2030: Building the Digital Ecosystem for Health Professions Education” will be posted in our public comment forum for feedback. This draft has been reviewed by the Steering Committee and its subcommittees. This final draft of the white paper will be available for 30 days before comments are collected and integrated into a version that will be published on our website.

    Hosted by Dr. Johmarx Patton, the April 20 episode of the "MedBiquitous Community Connection" webinar series will explain the direction that MedBiquitous is taking and provide a forum for the community to ask questions.
