Games. Podcasts. Tweetorials. It is time for our field to acknowledge these and other nontraditional forms of scholarship. For generations, scholarly productivity in academic medicine meant publishing articles in peer-reviewed journals. Today, traditional publishing is still an important piece of an academic medicine career, but myriad features from open science to social media and from microcredentials to graphic medicine are disrupting the definition of what constitutes educational scholarship. Speakers will draw from personal experience to discuss the innovative modes of scholarship development and dissemination that have furthered their work and careers, and the facilitator will provide context around the evolution of how nontraditional scholarship is “counted” toward career advancement in the field.

Learning Objectives:

  • List different types of nontraditional scholarship used in academic medicine today.
  • Describe how diverse and inclusive forms of nontraditional scholarship can contribute to your career advancement.
  • Identify at least one type of nontraditional scholarship to expand your own work and career.
