Upcoming Academy Interest Group Symposia and Workshops

The Academy Interest Group Symposia are organized by the Academy Interest Groups.

Mentoring Academy Interest Group Symposium: Advancing your Career Development as a Medical Educator - RSVP 
Monday, May 9, 2016 // 3:00- 5:15 PM // TMEC Room 250

This symposium has been planned both for faculty who seek career advice for themselves and for those providing guidance for mentees.

In a prior survey of Academy members, many expressed a need for mentorship in their personal career development. This symposium will describe pathways to career development for medical educators. The symposium will begin with a panel discussion; educators representing a range of careers in medical education will share elements critical to their career success. This will be followed by small group sessions in which participants will explore a core career development theme in detail. The symposium will end with an opportunity to network with educators across the HMS community.
