Looking Back and Moving Forward: Perspectives of AIAMC Leaders

Begin 2023 by registering for this thought-provoking and motivating AIAMC webinar!  We asked our members last fall to rank order AIAMC-member benefits, and NETWORKING once again came in on top.  Members of the AIAMC Executive Committee will share what they have learned through their careers in a relaxed “interview-style” format:  in both their day jobs and volunteer leadership positions.  They will also welcome your questions and identify future opportunities for continued growth.  Take an hour to network.  Take an hour for you…… to pause and reflect upon your own lessons learned as well as a fulfilling future professional path.

Difficult Teaching Case Conference

Teaching, like clinical medicine, is complex, nuanced, and draws on your cognitive and emotional resources.  This session will present a strategy in use for more than ten years at AIAMC-member Aurora Health Care to explore difficult teaching situations as a faculty development strategy – through a CME accredited “Difficult Teaching Case Conference”. Adapting a clinical M&M format, a case presenter describes the initial part of a difficult teaching situation, and then the moderator asks the audience “what would you do/say in this situation and why?”  Then the case presenter reveals what they actually did and why, and participants again say what they would do/say in this situation and why.  Throughout, participants ask questions, seek additional information, and usually share some “I’ve been there” moments. The conference closes with the moderator providing some literature to provoke additional thinking/discussion.  

During this webinar, attendees will participate in a “Difficult Teaching Case Conference” and discuss how to use this engaging strategy in their home institutions.
