Annual Education Retreat
On June 13–14, 2022, NYU Langone hosted its 10th Annual Education Retreat. The event, co-sponsored by the Office of Medical Education and Institute for Innovations in Medical Education, brought the community together to connect around the school's curricular redesign effort. During the two half-day event, more than 190 participants representing all academic departments in undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical education at NYU Grossman School of Medicine joined in person and online.
Day 1 Highlights
The retreat kicked off with welcome remarks and an overview of the new curriculum by Steve B. Abramson, MD, executive vice president and vice dean for education, faculty, and academic affairs, chief academic officer, and Victoria M. Harnik, PhD, associate dean for curriculum.
A key element of the new curriculum includes the ability for students to engage in early career exploration opportunities across all specialties. This topic was introduced through a panel moderated by Michael Poles, MD, PhD, assistant dean for medical education in the pre-clinical sciences. Lynn Buckvar-Keltz, MD; Kenneth A. Egol, MD; Arielle M. Kurzweil, MD; and Beatrice L. Telzak, MD, presented on what they are doing in their departments to serve as models for future programming. The presentations were followed by interactive small group discussions and report outs.
Day 2 Highlights
Mel G. Rosenfeld, PhD, welcomed the group on Day 2. Verity E. Schaye, MD, MHPE, and Colleen C. Gillespie, PhD, presented on aligning evaluation and assessment strategies. Their talk focused on the use of data to drive insight, goal setting, and action among learners, faculty, coaches, and program leadership. They were followed by Marc M. Triola, MD, who laid the foundation for advancing a more personalized approach to medical education. His talk was followed by a design-thinking workshop and report outs.
