    GSA Professional Development Initiative Webinar Series

    This series of webinars is part of the GSA Professional Development Initiative (PDI), a collaborative partnership between the AAMC and the GSA community. The PDI provides GSA professionals with just-in-time access to free tools & resources and a detailed framework outlining critical behaviors for student affairs professionals in medical education. The framework is well-aligned with LCME standards and can be used to facilitate career development discussions, write targeted goals, create job descriptions and improve overall individual performance. The PDI is a living project with new resources and learning opportunities created annually.

    At the conclusion of this webinar series, participants will be able to:

    • Describe the case for professional development and its value to the Student Affairs community.

    • Understand the GSA Performance Framework as a foundational tool and recognize its various components.

    • Raise awareness of the tools that accompany the GSA Performance Framework, their uses, and how to access them.
