  New Horizons: Selecting, Teaching, and Inspiring the Next Generation of Physicians | 2011 Western Regional AAMC Meeting
Date:   April 30 - May 3, 2011
Location:  

LKSC, LK101
Stanford, CA

Sponsor:   Stanford School of Medicine
Event details:  


From attracting potential applicants to preparing graduates for residency, we strive across the continuum of undergraduate medical education to develop and inspire future physicians. We look forward to inviting the WGEA/WGSA/GMAS/WAAHP community to Stanford's campus in May 2011 to share ideas and present innovations.

We will discuss new methods for selecting; opportunities in simulation/immersive learning; teaching strategies and educational interventions; and fresh perspectives on the many ways we can foster students' growth as physicians.

Opportunity for Student Involvement:
We at Stanford School of Medicine are honored to be hosting the 2011 Western Regional AAMC Meeting this spring. The meeting will be held April 30 – May 3; we expect over 300 participants from across the Western region. Student participation is highly encouraged. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to present their work, network, and learn about emerging topics in medical education, all right here at Stanford.

Some scholarship funds may be available to offset registration fees for students whose presentations are accepted.  Proposal abstracts are due January 31, 2011 (see details below).

For details please see:  http://med.stanford.edu/wgea-wgsa/ . Abstracts should be submitted according to the guidelines indicated there.
Dr. Braddock, Dr. Gabe Garcia, and Dr. Pree Basaviah are co-chairing the meeting;  feel free to contact them with your questions and/or ideas.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal and would like to share your ideas and receive some feedback or would like to listen to others ideas and provide feedback, please join the Medical Education Seminar Series on Wednesday, January 26, 12-1pm in LKSC 101.
