  • Telehealth Competencies to Train the Current and Future Physician Workforce - July 15

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 07/15/2021 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Telehealth, defined as the use of technology to deliver health care at a distance, has become an increasingly important and commonly used tool for delivering care to patients.

    Telehealth, defined as the use of technology to deliver health care at a distance, has become an increasingly important and commonly used tool for delivering care to patients. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, providers’ use of telehealth in teaching hospitals was growing steadily. Yet there was a lack of consensus on the competencies needed to provide high quality and equitable telehealth care. To meet this need, the AAMC, together with the AAMC Telehealth Advisory Committee, recently released Cross-Continuum Competencies in Telehealth.  This session will provide an introduction to these competencies and engage the attendees in an interactive discussion about the barriers and benefits of integrating them across academic medicine. The competencies and accompanying report, Telehealth Competencies Across the Learning Continuum, are final and free to access on the AAMC website.

    The report can be accessed here: Telehealth Competencies Across the Learning Continuum

  • Carving a Path to Leadership: Strategies and Interventions

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 05/26/2021 at 12:30 PM (EDT)

    Gleaning insights from current chairs and deans, as well as covering the data on WOC in leadership, this webinar will kick-start real dialogue about our current approaches and needed changes to make changes in the leadership of academic medicine.

    Leadership is most effective when it reflects the community that it serves. The efficacy, innovation, and outcomes of academic medicine are severely limited where there is a lack of women in leadership, and particularly women of color. WOC face unique challenges to both rising the ranks to leadership, as well as thriving in these positions, due to both systemic and individual biases. If our community is to diversify and adapt our current leadership structure, we must amplify efforts to both recruit and nurture women of color, whether they are an emerging voice or senior talent. While there is much focus on diversifying and adapting current leadership structures in academic medicine, some may say that there is little movement. 

    Our Women of Color and Intersectionality webinar series kicks off with an inaugural conversation on “Carving a Path to Leadership.” This live event will explore interventions and strategies immediately needed to support, develop, and sponsor women of color from leaving and thriving in the ranks of leadership in academic medicine. Gleaning insights from current chairs and deans, as well as covering the data on WOC in leadership, this webinar will kick-start real dialogue about our current approaches and needed changes to make changes in the leadership of academic medicine. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Explore the data related to women of color in leadership positions in academic medicine
    2. Elevate stories from women of color in leadership to understand carving a path to leadership, leadership strategies, and how to avoid pitfalls
    3. Engage with one another to share strategies to support and develop women of color into leadership positions

    The sustaining impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the way we lead and support others across academic medicine.

    The sustaining impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the way we lead and support others across academic medicine.  As our community begins to emerge, a new leadership paradigm will be critical to drive a more sustainable and innovative future for preparing the next generation of physician leaders. The impact of the pandemic has highlighted the importance of collating around a shared vision and mission; and, leaders should understand how their actions and behaviors can transform a culture and inspire teams to collaborate and build stronger relationships across the health system. During this webinar, GME leaders will share how their institutions are supporting the current and future needs of their staff and trainees by:  

    • Discussing plans to support the transition back to the workplace and proactively address concerns about entering back into public spaces while being open to a potential “new” normal
    • Adapting existing policies to meet individual and team needs, while adhering to institutional guidelines and consistent practices across the health system
    • Strengthening their ability to lead and communicate in diverse settings 
    • Creating sustainable improvements in the clinical learning environment from the lessons learned in this year’s UME-GME transition

  • MedBiquitous Community Connection Webinar: Impactful Specifications and Standards from the Total Learning Architecture - May 18

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 05/18/2021 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.

    This presentation will dive into the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative's 4-pillar data strategy for managing lifelong learning and explore the supporting set of international data standards. These standards exemplify the collective research done at ADL known as the Total Learning Architecture (TLA). The first standard is Experience API, which is a data standard that allows for human and machine readable experience data for human performance data, as well as the traditional knowledge-based data. The second standard that will be discussed is the Learning Activity Metadata standard, which is used to increase the granularity of how learning activities are aggregated and described. This supports the second TLA pillar that captures all available learning opportunities that exist across a learning ecosystem. The third data pillar consists of reusable competencies and competency frameworks, which make up the RCD (Reusable Competency Definition) standard. This standard describes how competencies can be tightly defined, organized, and designed to be shared across organizations. Finally, the fourth pillar of Learner Profiles binds all aspects of the learner - their past, present, and future - into a cohesive data structure. These collective efforts form the TLA and can be leveraged collectively or individually to increase organizational success.
