AAMC mailing lists are available for sharing valuable information and resources with our member institutions and constituents.

Northeast Group on Educational Affairs (NEGEA)

The NEGEA is one of four regional groups of the AAMC's Group on Educational Affairs (GEA). Our purpose is to promote excellence in the education of medical students, residents, and physicians through the professional development of medical educators. Our regional meetings provide a forum for exchanging ideas, learning new strategies, and developing plans that may facilitate your own work and implementation of the NEGEA mission.

Please plan to attend the next Annual Educational Retreat. We encourage and welcome your participation!


Upcoming Webinar

Join us for our new NEGEA Special Interest Group Conversation on a Health Humanities as a Teaching and Learning Strategy Webinar for Thursday, July 19, 5-6 p.m.
Register here

In this conversation, we will explore utilizing the humanities in learning moments in medical education with curricular and co-curricular efforts, and the effective use of artifacts, prompts and shared dialogue to promote understanding and learning.

Goal of the conversation: To foster a Community of Practice (CoP) model for utilizing health humanities as a teaching and learning pedagogical tool.

Health humanities programming explores the many ways in which the arts and humanities, as both formal and informal aspects of medical education, can inform healthcare, in terms of the physician-patient relationships, cultural competencies, and physician well-being.  Diverse and novel approaches at studying medicine enable providers to see and understand patients and disease through a new lens, leading to greater perspective and more compassionate care.  In addition, engaging in reflective practices and nurturing one’s interest in the arts helps physicians avoid the burnout which often accompanies intense medical practice.

In its strong support and encouragement of scholarship in medical education, the Northeast Group on Educational Affairs (NEGEA) provides funding to initiate new Medical Education Scholarship Research and Evaluation (MESRE) projects. The NEGEA seeks to stimulate the development of a community of educational scholars and thus is especially interested in projects promoting collaboration across institutions or across sections (UME, GME, CPD). Multiple research grants will be funded for up to a two- year period in either of the two NEGEA Collaborative Research Grant Award categories:

  1. Projects involving one NEGEA institution $3,000 up to a two-year period
  2. Projects involving the collaboration of two or more different NEGEA-affiliated institutions $6,000 up to a two-year period

All funded projects must be presented at an NEGEA annual conference.

Please see request for proposals  for details.
