ADMSEP Scholarly Publication Award - Call for Nominations

Hello ADMSEP Members,

The ADMSEP Scholarly Publication Award seeks to recognize the most outstanding UME-focused publication by an ADMSEP member over the past year. The Awards Committee has searched Academic Psychiatry, MedEdPORTAL, and Medical Teacher for publications and have already identified a number of publications for consideration.

If you have published between March 2023 and March 2024 in another journal (or would like to confirm consideration of your article in the aforementioned journals), please contact me with the citation for your publication.

Thank you,

Chase Findley

Miss the 2024 ADMSEP Spring Town Hall? Watch it in Members Only

ADMSEP Spring Town Hall – Wednesday March 20th, 2024 4p-530p EST - “Where Do We Go from Here? Development and Adoption of the New Foundational Core Competencies for Undergraduate Medical Education.”

Watch it in Members Only

This town hall was on the new AAMC competencies for medical student education. These foundational competencies were developed through a multi-year, four phase, collaborative national effort. Over 1,000 individuals provided input towards the development of the competencies, including those from psychiatry, and a diverse group was convened and charged to draft the new foundational competencies.

Dr. Lisa Howley from the AAMC presented on the new competencies and heard our feedback.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Abstract: The medical education community has been working towards competency-based education for decades. However, much work remains to align undergraduate and graduate medical education and enhance the transition to residency. An initiative led and advised by multiple medical education organizations has recently resulted in new foundational competencies for undergraduate medical education in the U.S. regardless of location or degree type. This interactive session will introduce the new foundational competencies for undergraduate medical education. The multi-year collaborative effort to develop them will be briefly reviewed and the attendees will be invited to ideate strategies to integrate them within their local educational programs.

Link to competencies: https://cloud.email.aamc.org/UME-Competencies-AAMC-AACOM-ACGME

Objectives: 1. Defend the need for a standard set of foundational competencies across UME programs, that align with GME. 2. Describe the foundational UME competencies that align across the continuum, and the process used to develop them. 3. Construct one or more actions towards local adoption of the new foundational competencies
