What is AIS?

Each year we bring together expert faculty to address the specific and relevant needs of industry professionals at this, evidence-based, interactive and engaging event. AIS will provide attendees with the tools to think through a constellation of needs that exist, the multiple agents that influence decisions, and the need to coordinate care in a better way so that learning can be used to apply principles into practice.

Attend this year’s summit and network with experts and peers as you discuss the changes impacting healthcare today and our role in the ever evolving future of patient care. After two full days, you’ll come away with best practices and actionable tools you can use to support independent medical education(IME) and ultimately help foster better patient care.

Summit Objectives

Through AIS, attendees will:

  1. Increase individual skill sets related to the Alliance National Learning Competencies to support life-long learning in the CPD field.
  2. Evaluate the role of Real World Evidence in IME and our potential collaborations with other healthcare stakeholders who share interests in using Real World Evidence to improve population health.
  3. Assess opportunities to incorporate the patient voice into educational design and support.
  4. Incorporate effective practices of educational outcomes and data analytics into strategic planning.
  5. Improve communication that demonstrates the impact education has on closing healthcare gaps.
