RIME Program Planning Committee

The Research in Medical Education (RIME) Program Planning Committee is responsible for the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the RIME component of the AAMC Medical Education Meeting. The committee members, with the guidance and support of the AAMC Staff, have several responsibilities, including:

  • Planning the structure of the RIME components of the AAMC Medical Education Meeting;
  • Coordinating the RIME Call for Submissions with the AAMC Medical Education Meeting Planning Committee;
  • Issuing the RIME Call for Research Papers, Review Papers, and Research Abstracts;
  • Reviewing the submissions for Research Papers, Review Papers, and Research Abstracts;
  • Collating the external reviews of research papers, review papers and abstracts to select papers and abstracts for presentation at the AAMC Medical Education Meeting
  • Providing constructive feedback to authors who responded to the RIME Call for Submissions;
  • Identifying areas of research methods and skills that would benefit the broader community of educators.
  • Communicating and aligning efforts to advance educational research with the MESRE committee/GEA steering committee

The major responsibility of RIME Program Planning Committee members is the review and selection of papers and research abstracts submitted for the RIME conference at the AAMC Medical Education Meeting. The review includes compiling detailed constructive feedback for all papers and research abstracts submitted. The committee members begin the review process in the winter and final selection decisions are made at the committee meeting in the spring. The RIME committee meets twice a year, in or around the AAMC Medical Education Meeting and in the spring. .

The term of a RIME Program Planning Committee member is three years, with the exception of the committee Chair. Each year the current year’s committee “Chair” is requested to serve an additional year in the role of “Past Chair”. RIME Program Planning Committee members are nominated by their peers and elected through a national process in which all members of the Medical Education Scholarship Research and Evaluation (MESRE) Section are able to vote. Each year the ballot consists of a candidate with a MD/DO degree and a candidate with a PhD/EdD degree. Additionally, the nominating committee may consider specific areas of expertise in the identification of candidates.
