Leadership & Learning Opportunities
Opportunities for members to serve in national leadership roles continue to grow. Recently, the Coalition for Physician Accountability launched an effort to examine the transition from medical school to residency and is convening a planning committee to lead this work. AOGME is one of the participating organizations in this effort. A Call for Nominations was recently disseminated; if you are interested in serving on the planning committee that will launch this work, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations are due February 5, 2020.
This month, AOGME hosted two webinars to launch the 2020 webinar series. The first was an informational webinar about the AOGME Residents and Fellows Council (RFC) featuring its leaders. The second, held on January 29 concluded a four-part AOGME webinar series on scholarship and research and was focused on the interpretation of study results. Next month, in partnership with the American Academy of Osteopathy (AAO), AOGME will host a round table webinar discussion on a model to provide osteopathic focused education in GME. The webinar will feature the University Hospitals Osteopathic Consortium. Stay tuned for registration information.
