Nominate Yourself for the SOME Innovation Awards

November 04, 2019

Have you recently participated in an innovative project that would be valuable to other osteopathic medical educators? Was ingenuity and imagination used to shape your ideas into a product? Were innovative methods used to obtain information, such as from experts, organizations, or relevant literature? Did the project result in something new, unique or surprising? Did target learners include elements in a presentation that were especially fun, lively, engaging, or powerful to the audience?

If so, please nominate yourself for a Society of Osteopathic Medical Educators (SOME) Innovation in Medical Education Award. Individuals interested in sharing their work could be eligible to receive an award of up to $1000 from AACOM. Only SOME members are eligible to apply.
