Medical Ground Rounds: Squeezing Four Years of Medical School into Three: Creating Time to be Creative
Wednesday, October 1, 2014 4:00 to 5:30PM TMEC 250-
Edward G. Buckley, M.D., Vice Dean for Education, Duke University School of Medicine
At a time when knowledge is exploding, technology is enabling us to learn more in less time. The paradigm of "knowing" is shifting to "acquiring". Our task as medical educators is to provide the infrastructure for our students to be lifelong "learners" instead of "knowers". Duke's innovative 2 year required curriculum gives endless opportunities while providing the necessary foundation to be successful. How it happened, lessons learned, and future directions will be presented.

Medical Education Day - Assessment: Getting to the Top of the Pyramid
Tuesday, October 28, 2014 12:15 to 6:00PM
The goal of medical education is to produce physicians who can provide quality care for their patients. Given the complexity of biomedical science, the need to interact with growing diversity in the patient population, and the rapidly evolving healthcare environment, assessing competence has become increasingly challenging. To the extent that the focus and means by which assessment is performed can have an impact on the approach learners take in courses and clinical settings, teachers must be particularly thoughtful about the interdependence of teaching-learning-assessment. Utilizing plenary discussions and workshops, this program will explore strategies for assessing medical students and residents as we go from “knowledge,” the base of Miller’s pyramid, to “demonstrating competence,” the top of the pyramid.

Bonnie M. Miller, M.D., Senior Associate Dean for Health Sciences Education and Associate Vice-Chancellor for Health Affairs, Vanderbilt School of Medicine
Over the past two years, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine has undergone a major curriculum reform, moving the core clerkship year from year three to year two, and creating a new set of post-clerkship advanced integrated science courses, time for research, and a robust system of advising and student portfolios for assessment. With our curriculum at HMS launching next year, this is a perfect time to learn from the Vanderbilt experience, and Dr. Miller will share both the opportunities and challenges of various key elements of implementing this new curricular design.
