Medical Education Day is a time to acknowledge and highlight educational innovations taking place throughout the University of Michigan Medical School. This annual event is an opportunity for the medical education community to gather and meet directly with students and faculty who have initiated advances in medical education.
This year’s Medical Education Day will be special. Our plenary speaker is Dr. Olle ten Cate, from the University of Utrecht. Dr. ten Cate is an internationally recognized medical education scholar and is particularly well known for originating the concept of Entrustable Professional Activities or EPAs. Competencies and EPAs are front and center for many in undergraduate and graduate education, so the opportunity to hear and interact with Dr. ten Cate is noteworthy.
In addition, Medical Education Day will take place in conjunction with the American Medical Association’s Accelerating Change in Education initiative. As announced earlier, Michigan was one of 11 recipients of this award and will be hosting this first gathering of the 11 schools. UM faculty members will have opportunities to learn about innovations being developed and implemented at these schools and be able to share their own creative ideas.Event Sponsors
