The AAMC is exploring opportunities to collaborate on a new meeting dedicated to sharing research and scholarship related to the practice of academic medicine.
A new meeting would provide a venue for scholars across disciplines (e.g., medical education, workforce development, admissions, educational technology) to share their work and connect with each other. The goals of this meeting would be to remove siloes, encourage cooperation, and build the evidence base to improve the practice of academic medicine.
Possible meeting objectives
- Share your research and scholarship with peers
- Connect with others engaged in similar activities to find potential collaborators, including across disciplines
- Expand your scholarly habits and grow your scientific practice
- Forge a professional pathway as an aspiring or early career scholar
Intersection with Learn Serve Lead: The AAMC Annual Meeting
While there is likely to be some impact on Learn Serve Lead: The AAMC Annual Meeting, until we explore options and choose a path forward, it is impossible to say exactly what that impact will be. For the foreseeable future, the Learn Serve Lead meeting will remain as it is today, with integrated scholarly content and sessions focused on medical education.
Where we are now
This meeting is still very much a concept. Over the next 6 months, we will complete a needs assessment in the community to gather feedback for our decision to move forward. As part of this process, we will explore opportunities to collaborate with partners and other organizations across academic medicine. This page will be updated as new information is available.
