Academy Interest Groups

At the Academy membership meeting in March 2010, we discussed the importance of the role of an Academy member in making our efforts successful. Members were selected for the Academy because of their leadership roles and commitment to medical education at the UME and GME levels. One of the mechanisms by which they can make a difference in education at HMS is through their participation in one of the Academy "interest groups." Based on comments from the spring Academy meeting and feedback on Academy membership applications, we have identified common themes that have emerged for the organization of interest groups. Among the outcomes of the interest groups may be one or more of the following:

  • Ideas for medical education grand rounds
  • Proposals for special faculty development sessions of the Academy
  • Proposals for changes in or development of new curricula or assessment procedures.
  • Outreach to junior faculty in the hospital-based academies and centers for education.
  • Journal clubs focused on their topic.
