Guidelines for Preparing an Abstract for IME

In soliciting abstracts, the planning committee has the following objectives:

  • Provide a forum for sharing innovative ideas and educational innovations related to teaching and learning, leading, mentoring, and wellbeing within health professions education.
  • Build and enhance participant skills related to teaching, leadership, professional development, and promotion of wellbeing.
  • Build a network of health professionals interested in promoting educational excellence and wellbeing in academic medicine and health professions education.

The planning committee will consider all content areas intended to promote or assess learning at any level (undergraduate, graduate, practitioner, faculty). Projects that discuss learner/faculty wellbeing, culturally responsive health care, professionalism/professional formation, communication, quality improvement,  patient safety, and interprofessional education are encouraged. Also of interest are presentations of new technologies that are impacting and changing the delivery of medical education (i.e., immersive learning, AR/VR/360 degree camera use, MOOCs, etc.). Participatory workshops focusing on key skills related to teaching, research, leadership, professional development, wellbeing, curriculum development, and use of technology are also welcome.
