The 2020 IME Conference is seeking submissions in the following categories:

1. Innovations with outcome data (works in progress or completed innovations)
Click here to submit your Innovation abstract

This category represents innovative educational research, curriculum interventions, and quality improvement projects transferable beyond the institution where implemented. Research studies should be grounded in a theoretical framework. Curricular innovations should be soundly based on learning principles and be designed to meet a specific local or national need. The abstract must include complete or partial outcome results to show the effectiveness (or lack of effectiveness) of the innovation. Most innovations are presented at a poster session; however, the top abstracts (based on the review criteria) will be offered the opportunity to present their abstract in an oral presentation session. Please review Guidelines for Preparing an Abstract for IME. The abstract must include the following sections:
