2017 Annual Medical Education Innovations & Scholarship Day Highlights
On November 16, 2017, more than 140 attendees—including faculty, students, residents, and staff—came together to recognize the innovations occurring across the institution in undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical education. The event included workshops and awards to celebrate the educators who stood out for their leadership and contributions to medical education at the local and national levels. As Steven Abramson, MD, said, “it is another milestone along the way of valorizing what each and every one of you do in the school.”
Highlights from the 2017 event, which kicked off with welcome remarks from Dr. Abramson, included the following presentations.
The following are some of the speakers and participants at the event.
