Collaboration and connection were front-and-center during the six pre-conferences today at to kick off the 2019 Annual Educational Conference. The pre-conferences, which are designed to appeal to those across experience levels from a first-year coordinator to seasoned designated institutional official (DIO), mixed detailed information about ACGME accreditation with inspirational and aspirational examples of how each member of the graduate medical education (GME) community can positively influence the experience of patients, peers, colleagues, and themselves through their work and unique contributions.
The collaborative is third in a series to engage residents and fellows, improve their ability to provide quality health care.
This second report provides insight into changing clinical learning environments, and shows improvements in resident and fellow engagement in patient safety. The first report was released in 2016.
In this second in a series of collaboratives, participating teams will develop and test new models that equip learners with the skills they need to better engage in systems-based approaches to delivering high-quality care.
Teams of Pathway Innovators and Pathway Leaders attended Learning Sessions to share their experiences and advance the projects they initiated at their institutions.
In one of the final sessions at the 2018 Annual Educational Conference on Sunday, March 4, a panel of ACGME executives, deans, a patient safety expert, and a resident spoke to the crowd about how medicine is changing and graduate medical education may need to evolve to serve patients well into the 21st century.
For the third year in a row, the Annual Educational Conference is featuring three theme-focused sessions following the Welcome and CEO Address on Friday morning. This year’s conference theme, Engaging Each Other: Transformation through Collaboration, encompasses an array of applications in health care and GME. These three sessions speak to that range, underscoring central issues facing physicians at all levels of experience.
With pre-conferences, specialty sessions, plenaries, a keynote, the Exhibit Hall, poster sessions, awards, and networking on tap, the 2018 ACGME Annual Educational Conference has tons to offer!
