The AIS Planning Committee is accepting abstract proposals for sessions that align with this year’s theme, “All Ships Rise: Navigating through Change to Increase Educational Effectiveness and Improve Patient Care,” and the learning objectives, listed below.  The application period will be open through Monday, December 4th at 11:59 pm ET

As the healthcare environment continues to change, healthcare delivery continues to evolve, how will the medical education industry adapt to support the needs of healthcare providers and patients?  In addition to planned keynote speakers and invited sessions, your experiences, expertise, and learnings will help “all ships rise” to navigate these challenges by enhancing our continued dialogue.  For more information, click the Submit an Abstract button below.

  3. Successfully integrate the patient voice into medical education planning and development
  4. Define additional stakeholders and potential collaborations in the healthcare improvement movement to enhance sustainable change
  5. Gain tips and tools to communicate the evidence of IME effectiveness, inspire confidence among stakeholders, and cultivate future innovation
