This popular symposium (formerly known as the Hematology Course Director’s Workshop) offers educators practical tips, a place of camaraderie, and a space for considering cutting edge methods for reaching medical students. This year’s program will present a general session topic during the first hour, covering medical education principles including education theory, novel techniques for teaching in a pre-clinical setting, fostering well-being, and quality improvement and safety. Rakesh P. Mehta, MD, chairs the symposium, and Jason A. Freed, MD, and Jennifer C. Kesselheim, MD, MEd, will lead breakout sessions (attendees can choose one) on “Developing and Conducting Effective Didactic Presentations for the Millennial Learner,” and “Medical Education Scholarship,” respectively.
The symposium offers further breakout topics, inviting attendees to dive into more intensive, forward-looking discussions with the experts, including “Virtual Microscopy,” “Using Technology in Medical Education,” “Is Medical Education Ready for the iGeneration?” and “Teaching on Rounds: The 5-minute Lecture.” Check the annual meeting app for more on the symposium and all of the speakers.
The session includes a breakfast and will be held on Sunday, December 8, from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. All hematology course directors are welcome to attend. The meeting will take place from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. in Regency Ballroom V of the Hyatt Regency Orlando (map it)
