Teaching and assessing health systems science The discipline of health systems science complements the other two pillars of medical education: basic and clinical sciences. Health systems science includes improving health care quality, increasing the value of care provided, enhancing patient safety, delivering population-based medical care, working collaboratively in teams, recognizing the socio-ecological determinants of health and understanding health care policy and economics.
Advancing competency-based medical education Competency-based medical education moves away from time-based progression and requires new ways of thinking about curriculum design and assessment methods. Focused on measurable performance outcomes, it incorporates learning theory collecting and interpreting data in order to help each student navigate his or her path to graduation. Technology and coaching are common tools used in this design.
Establishing a safe transition to residency As medical schools implement new ways of teaching and assessing students, graduate medical programs should prepare to accept a new generation of learners and adapt their programming as necessary to ensure a smooth transition that positions learners for well-being and success.
Creating an optimized learning environment that promotes diversity An optimum learning experience depends on an optimized learning environment that promotes diversity and well-being in its student body. By laying this groundwork during training, physicians enter practice better prepared to engage with their communities, practice well-being and ultimately achieve the Quadruple Aim.
Incorporation of emerging technologies into curricula Medical schools, residencies and health professions programs are adapting technology in new ways to solve key problems, advance curricular goals and improve training. The use of electronic health records designed for teaching, management of patient panels, interpretation of big data and ePortfolios are examples of current technology solutions.
Preparing today’s learners for tomorrow’s practice Medical schools, residencies and health professions programs are tasked with meeting the expectations of current learners as well as complex and evolving health systems. To better align learner training with the 21st century health system, institutions must develop and assess leadership, lifelong learning, interprofessional skills and other dimensions of professional practice.
Glimpse of the future (15-minute session) Thought-provoking insights into inspirational innovations that have the potential to re-shape medical education, overcome difficult challenges and impact the continuum.
Innovation exploration (25-minute session) Discussion of research and innovations that are in process or have recently reached a key milestone. Facilitators will highlight a specific challenge, share data gathered to date and emphasize currently unmet needs.
Portable Transformation (50-minute session) Description of an innovation, solution, technique or process that could be adopted by others in the medical education community. Facilitators will highlight potentially unique aspects of their own implementation and session participants will discuss how they might port it to their home institutions.
