Workshops

Workshops

Workshops typically focus on a single aspect of a specific topic within clinical practice and innovations, medical education or research. Workshops provide opportunities for attendees to gain new knowledge, skills, or expertise in an area relevant to their work in general internal medicine. They also promote the exchange of ideas in these areas to enhance the learning of all participants. The most effective and highly rated workshops are interactive, include a range of perspectives, and employ active learning strategies. Workshops should focus on practical knowledge, skills, or ideas that can be implemented across institutions and programs rather than narrowly focus on one institution’s experience. We strongly encourage members to collaborate across institutions

      Submitting authors MUST select one primary category and one secondary category for each submission that best reflects the work.
