2019 Annual Meeting: Call for Breakout Session Proposals

posted on July 17, 2018

We invite you to submit a proposal for a breakout session at the 2019 AIAMC Annual Meeting, to be held March 28th – 30th at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona.  Breakout sessions must have a hands-on workshop format that provides practical tips on applying the principles presented in the plenary sessions and will be 75 minutes in length. Proposals are due no later than September 14, 2018 and all submitting presenters will be notified of the selection committee's decision by mid-October.

These breakouts will feature AIAMC members who have good stories to share. Session content should support the meeting theme of The Future GME as follows:

  • C-Suite Perspective/GME as a Strategic Asset
  • Change Management
  • Curricula
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Role of Faculty in the Future
  • Funding/GME Financing
  • Technology/Innovation
  • Well-Being

Breakout sessions should have a hands-on workshop approach and be highly interactive.  Prior to submitting your proposal, please review this example of a prior breakout session proposal that was accepted by the planning committee. We hope this exemplar will be helpful to you as you develop your institution’s proposal(s).

A selection committee – made up of AIAMC members serving on the 2019 Annual Meeting Planning Committee – will determine which proposals are accepted. Submitters will be notified of the committee’s selections no later than October 19, 2018. All accepted presenters are required to register for the conference. In accordance with AIAMC policy, all registration fees and travel expenses will be the responsibility of the presenter’s home institution. Submitting a proposal is a commitment that, if the proposal is accepted, all proposed presenters will attend the 2019 Annual Meeting and conduct the session at the time assigned.

We encourage you to submit a proposal and look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
